Abstract:

""An intriguing, important, and often entertaining look at an under-studied aspect of new religions. Highly recommended.""--Douglas E. Cowan, author of Cyberhenge: Modern Pagans on the Internet For most of its history, contemporary Paganism has been a religion of converts. Yet as it enters its fifth decade, it is incorporating growing numbers of second-generation Pagans for whom Paganism is a family tradition, not a religious worldview arrived at via a spiritual quest. In Pagan Family Values, S. Zohreh Kermaniexplores the ways in which North American Pagan families pass on their beliefs to their children, and how the effort to socialize children influences this newreligious movement.
