Well, truth or Dare is political, not religious.  Starhawk sort of falls off the left end of the universe.  And I doubt she's nonradiacal about anything.

True enough, I suppose. I wouldn't say it's totally unreligious though; there's plenty of Goddess symbolism and ritual in there; it's just not a religious primer. It's more of a political manifesto with her own worldview chucked in.

Let me put it a different way.

The book store shelves SPiral dance under metaphysics next to Silver's stuff, and Truth or Dare under politics, in the shelf vicinity of The COmmuniist Manifesto and THe Federalist Papers.

Is it any good or did I waste my money?
It's a great buy however you feel on feminism in Neopaganism, purely because it was such a ground-breaker at the time.  It helped modern witchcraft widen its appeal significantly, I think because of her combining of so many things that were important to people i.e the role of women and the environment.  It's been a long while since I read it but I recall appreciating her interpretation of magic in a psychological context, having to do with the realisation of our own potential.  Can't say that I recall the history but I probably blocked it out because it was bad, as others are assuring us!

Actually I haven't started it yet! Smiley I've been busy with moving, working with my new pendulum, and working on making a black mirror. As soon as I read it, I'll let you know what I think. Promise! Cheesy

Like, totally.  Grin

Okay, seriously, Spiral Dance will always be dear to my heart as it is the first book I found as well that I felt had brought me home. She recounts the current view (at the time) of the (very Bad) history, but what amazed me is she wrote it when she was 26 years old. Overall, I have been very happy to have such a grounded non-Laurie Cabot type person standing up as a public witch. Her Twelve Swans is another great book.

I also have attended many Reclaiming events and although I do not call myself a member completely, my personal craft is aligned with them about 89%.

Me too. It seems to be pretty common in our neck of the woods. Reclaiming events really have set the standard for all other public pagan events here.
