When it comes to Greek magic, Collins is an authority in the field. But with his work, you're less likely to get an anthology or a good source book; rather, his work analyzes aspects of magic thematically. This offers a unique view, but Collins assumes his reader will have background knowledge of the theorists he names. Perhaps the most valuable part of this book is his works cited, which is a superb and reliable starting point for future research.

I love this book. It is a very interesting discussion of magic in the Mediterranean world.
