About the Author:

Rosemary Ellen Guiley is a leading expert on the paranormal, and is the author of more than 45 books and hundreds of articles on a wide range of topics.

She is a frequent guest on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. Guiley is a consulting editor of FATE Magazine and a frequent lecturer across the country. She lives in Connecticut.

From Booklist:

With more than 400 entries and 80 black-and-white photos, this resource explores what many believe are the sources of evil—demons or devils. Demons, as defined here, are “lower agents of evil,” having many guises and operating under many names with many purposes. The book does a fine job of walking the reader through all the mythology; if readers are looking for a strictly Christian interpretation of demonology, it’s not here. Key topics include the types of demons and history of demonology, possession and historical cases, today’s demonologists and exorcists, forms and means of confronting demons, and demons in popular culture, different cultures, and many religious traditions. Entries are organized A–Z, and most conclude with a short title list of further reading. Additionally, a concise, unannotated bibliography is included at the end of the work. Guiley is a leading authority and author on numerous paranormal topics and has appeared on TV and radio shows. She feels everyone needs to be informed about demons, and with this title, she wants to “open further avenues of inquiry on the subject of the dark side.” The work is a thorough reference on an arcane subject and is valuable for its many historical accounts of demons or devils and their arts. Guiley is sometimes criticized for her lack of skepticism, but she has produced a helpful resource for readers who need an overview. It will be used in public and academic libraries by patrons who are interested in demonology. --Susan Awe

Descripción Facts on File Inc, United States, 2009. Loose-leaf. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The conflict between good and evil can be found in every culture, mythical tradition, and religion throughout history. In many cases, the source of evil has been personified as demons or devils, and in many belief systems, both are considered to be real entities operating outside the boundaries of the physical world to torment people or lead them astray. In some traditions demons are believed to be the direct opposite of angels, working against the forces of good and challenging them. Real or not, demons are at the heart of many fascinating beliefs and traditions, several of which are widely held today.
