The Encyclopedic Sourcebook of Satanism
This is the book to buy, if you want the latest and most comprehensive academic book on Satanism
and The Satanic Panic.
"In the public imagination Satanism
is associated with bizarre rituals, perverse hedonistic lifestyles, heavy metal music, immature adolescents acting out, horror movies, and rumors of ritual abuse. But what are the facts behind the urban legends and the “moral panics” that periodically sweep the country regarding this countercultural phenomenon? This authoritative reference work gathers together scholarly studies of Satanism
and original source material, focusing on two major aspects—organized religious Satanism
and the Satanic Ritual Abuse hoax that was prevalent in the 1980s and early 1990s."
