“The best work so far on this increasingly important holiday.”–Publishers Weekly

“Performs the heroic service of taking all the stuff in stores seriously, as instruments in the creation of a new unreligious holiday of some significance, if the retailers are to be believed…. They say that the devil is in the details, and Rogers is a connoisseur of delicious tidbits of macabre.”–New York Times Book Review

“Halloween is a rich mix of historical detail and keen cultural observation about the holiday in North America. He reaches far back to the festival’s pagan roots and follows its development into a unique celebration of liminality, cultural borrowing, and outrageous invention. Halloween is surely an important contribution to a growing literature that takes seriously our moments of play.”–Penne Restad, author of Christmas in America: A History

“This book paints its subject in very broad strokes, giving us a glimpse of an increasingly significant holiday over a vast expanse of space and time. How delightful, too, to read about an event through a North American, rather than strictly American perspective.”–Jack Kugelmass, author of Masked Culture: The Greenwich Village Halloween Parade
