Summary
More than an occult parlour game, 19th century American Spiritualism was a new religion, which channeled the voices of the dead, linked present with past, and conjured new worldly and otherworldly futures. Tracing the persistence of magic in an emergent culture of secularism, McGarry looks at this part of American cultural history
