Praise for Magic for the Resistance

Readers interested in the power of magic and dismayed by the tumultuous current political moment will want to give this enticing guide a look.--Publishers Weekly

Inspires socially conscious magical practitioners to harness the power of our imaginations and collective will, reminding us where true power really resides: in the hands of the people.--Amanda Yates Garcia, the Oracle of Los Angeles

Magic to the people! This wonderfully engaging guide--one part history, one part grimoire--demonstrates how and why to combine spell work and activism to heal our society and get rid of our heel.--Mitch Horowitz, PEN Award-winning author of Occult America and The Miracle Club

This is rare combination of a how-to book that also gives a solid historical and cultural perspective on the uses of magic to resist political oppression. Sound and well-grounded both factually and magically, it's also well written and well informed.--Sabina Magliocco, Professor of Anthropology, University of British Columbia

Vote. Organize. March. Protest. Boycott. Resist. Be an activist for your beliefs. Then...put your magic where your mouth is! You might want to start by reading Magic for the Resistance.--Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Homemade Magick and Low Magick

Magic for the Resistance is a fascinating look at how the occult arts can be used to promote progressive politics and social change...From Victoria Woodhull, the mesmerist, feminist, and free-love advocate who was the first woman to run for president, to the attempt by Allen Ginsberg and Abbie Hoffman to levitate the Pentagon in 1966, Magic for the Resistance shows that throughout history, spells have been cast to help the light contain the darkness.--Gary Lachman, author of Dark Star Rising: Magick and Power in the Age of Trump

In Magic for the Resistance, Michael Hughes has written an eminently necessary guidebook for the magic-workers of our time.--David Salisbury, civil rights activist, magic-worker, and author of A Mystic Guide to Cleansing & Clearing

This book empowers the reader to liberate stagnancy and facilitate positive change, to feel/be heard, and to learn from obstacles and challenges that are encountered. On the surface, mass-market, glitzy media publicity can look worthwhile and even meaningful--but real lasting change/evolution is more than a knee jerk reaction or a fad. It starts at a grassroots level and is perpetual, and this is what Hughes expounds and educates on in this well-written and entertaining book.--Fiona Horne, author of Witch: A Magickal Journey and The Naked Witch

Michael Hughes has drawn on his erudition as well as his quarter-century of experience as a practicing magician to offer a complete manual of 'Warrior Magic' in the service of justice.--Leonard George, PhD, Chair of the School of Social Sciences, Capilano University, and author of Crimes of Perception

Besides shedding light on certain little-known aspects of our cultural history (the second chapter is a particular revelation), this book provides an excellent and accessible glimpse into the mechanics, philosophy, and, yes, ethics of magical practice.--Ray Grasse, author of The Waking Dream, Under a Sacred Sky, and An Infinity of Gods

If you are seeking a route into activism through the application of practical magic and ritual, with clear guidance and support, then you will likely find this book an excellent resource.--Em Chuter for Pagan Dawn
