"I HAVE discussed in this book some aspects of Indian witch- craft from the earliest times to the present day. They have been examined from the angles of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam. The chief features of Indian witchcraft are first taken up, followed by its important deities and the rituals undertaken in the execution of sorcery. The last two chapters deal with witches and wizards at some length. Documentation has been adopted in this work and a select bibliography furnishes some idea of some, though not of all, the sources consulted. In some cases identification of persons and places especially in Tibet has not been attempted owing to several reasons. I My thanks are due to my younger daughter Dr Vidya Saletore for helpful criticism." R.N. SALETOR
