Editorial Reviews

Review

'There is no question that Douglas Cowan's contribution to the study of modern paganism on the Internet is significant and valuable. He achieved his goal in removing the hype surrounding this form of religious activity, supplying readers with a clear overview of the phenomenon, new theoretical frameworks and heuristic devices for interpreting the activities, and insight into how the World Wide Web is changing the religious landscape of our wired world.' - Christopher Helland, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada

'A much needed book.' - Irving Hexham, University of Calgary, Canada

'This book should become one of the classic texts in the still relatively new area of study.' - J. Gordon Melton, University of California, USA

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written in 2005, many parts of this author's perspective are far outdated here in 2013. However, even in looking at the social and technical concepts of the internet as brought forward - the author's disdain for many of the online aspects of Paganism at that time are quite evident. At the start of his book, he picks out a particular online coven - IOW, a coven that practices their teachings and rituals solely online with one another - and proceeds to utilize that as an anvil to pound his points upon. From my own perspective (and I was around and active on the internet as far back as the mid 1990s), I do not see how a Nature-based practice can be properly brought forward in an environment that lives inside the routers, servers, and connective wiring of the internet. However, that's solely my own perspective - if it works for someone else, who am I to downgrade that individual's experience. I would suggest that this particular attitude of my own may have been the primary factor in poisoning my understanding of the cynical (my impression) stance of the author. Considering how out of date this particular book is with today's internet, and with today's online Pagan community (which I have personally found to be quite vibrant), I would note recommend this book for anyone looking for an understanding of today's online Pagan community. Nor would I recommend this book as a good perspective of the online Pagan community of yesteryear, due to my very different perspective of that time frame as well. As a piece of social History on a very narrow window of the online community, its much akin to peeking through a set of closed curtains while standing outside of the house.
