Want to be cunning? You might wish you were more clever, more flexible, able to cut a few corners without getting caught, to dive now and again into iniquity and surface clutching a prize. You might want to roll your eyes at those slaves of duty who play by the rules. Or you might think there's something sleazy about that stance, even if it does seem to pay off. Does that make you a chump? With pointedly mischievous prose, Don Herzog explores what's alluring and what's revolting in cunning. He draws on a colorful range of sources: tales of Odysseus; texts from Machiavelli; pamphlets from early modern England; salesmen's newsletters; Christian apologetics; plays; sermons; philosophical treatises; detective novels; famous, infamous, and obscure historical cases; and more. The book is in three parts, bookended by two murderous churchmen. "Dilemmas" explores some canonical moments of cunning and introduces the distinction between knaves and fools as a "time-honored but radically deficient scheme." "Appearances" assails conventional approaches to unmasking. Surveying ignorance and self-deception, "Despair?" deepens the case that we ought to be cunning--and then sees what we might say in response. Throughout this beguiling book, Herzog refines our sense of what's troubling in this terrain. He shows that rationality, social roles, and morality are tangled together--and trickier than we thought.

In this book, the author is attempting to make sense, as a philosopher, of the ideas of rationality put forward by economists, sociologists, and political theorists. The book intervenes in intense current debates within and among several disciplines. Its concern is with the true nature of social actors and the proper character of social science. Its arguments are the more challenging for being presented in simple, incisive, and lucid prose.

Of course it is not possible to de-mystify Mysticism, and who would want to? Yet also there is no need for deliberate and gratuitous obscurantism. 'Witcha' presents many secrets of English Witchcraft in plain language, giving details of widdershins and deosil circle casting, spell-craft, divination, spiritism, sabbats and esbats, sacrifice, entheogens, philosophy, history, and more besides. The focus is primarily upon those aspects commonly called operative witchcraft', which is the witchcraft of results' and getting things done', rather than the supposedly more spiritual' aspects that have been the subject of so many books of late. These are illustrated with photographs taken by my step-father, Adrian Brynn-Evans, detailing -with their kind permission and support- exhibits from the Museum of Witchcraft, Boscastle. These give visual reference to the historical context of this path, proving that it is not something invented by New Age gurus.

Fiction. "Cunning" is the story of various impossible women -- Elizabeth I, Mary of Scotland, the 19th century courtesan Lola Montez, Sarah Winchester and Sarah Winnemucca, the men they use and are used by, and the fabled lands they covet and colonize, California and Ireland" (Kevin Killian). These are cunning women; this is cunning writing: "'She is a low cunning witch, ' he claimed, which, not knowing what he meant, made her believe that cunning was the word for what she did for what she had done. For what she was." Written in short chapters and gorgeous, propelled sentences, poet Laura Moriarty's novelistic foray into history, geography, the female, asks to be read in one delicious sitting. "In the geography of the masque, everything is exposed. There is a handwritten quality to the age which is also true of the play. Our attendance is mandatory in the sense that we will not feel part of life if we are left out. The absent ones are remembered and then not" (from "The Masque of 'The World'").
