Runes and Magic book. This is the pinnacle of academic studies of runes and magic. It perhaps contributed to the decline of Flowers' academic career, yet its value to the scholar of the runes is unprecedented. It is entirely possible to study nothing beyond the pages of this book and yet have an immense understanding and knowledge of the runes in terms of both history and application.

From the beginnings of the scientific study of runes, questions concerning their magical nature have been raised. In this book Stephen Flowers puts this question in the context of current theories of magic for the first time. He approaches problems of runes and their connection to magical thinking from a structural standpoint based on linguistic models of communication. Certain formulas are isolated and analysed as to the possible ways in which they could be considered «magical» within the context of general conceptions of magic in archaic Germanic culture. Flowers'analysis of the runic evidence from the perspective of current theories of magic and the history of writing systems brings us a good measure closer to a comprehensive answer to the riddle of the runes.

This work represents one of the few serious works on magical elements in Elder Futhark inscriptions. Although more recent works have come out, this survey is still important because the author deals with details like dates of finds, etc. While some of his conclusions are debated, the value of the work is not.

In comparison to other works on the subject, this work stands out in its attempt to provide some descriptions of formuleic elements in the inscriptions. These formuleic elements provide a basis for better understanding the magical uses of the Runes and their relation to descendant literary and poetic traditions. The MacLeod and Mees misses this important element, for example. Secondly, this work attempts to put magical uses of the Runes into a context of magical theories worked out by sociologists and anthropologists and is still entirely unique in this way.

This is a hard-to-find work but is extremely worth reading.
