The Great Cosmic Mother: Rediscovering the Religion of the Earth, by Monica Sjoo (is not without feminist bias, but has some very good information about symbolism in paleopaganism).
Walkers Between the Worlds: Western Mysteries From Shaman to Magus by John & Caitlin Matthews (Traces the development and remnants from tribal spirituality to organized religion and shares discourse on the cultural value of both)
Magic and Witchcraft, by Neville Drury (Aside from a decent array of topics ranging from Shamanism to NeoPaganism, Drury tackles the less frequently addressed subject of the history of the Transcendentalist Movement of the 1960s, which gave birth to what we now call Techno-Paganism and Digital or Cyber Magic. Such types characterise the use of technology with the pursuit of Pagan spirituality.)
