Virtually all cultures have used divination to seek advice or help from unseen forces, though the methods have differed. Karcher (Elements of the I Ching, Element, 1995) gives a colorful historical overview of the practices from many lands and times, including runes, tarot, dowsing, numerology, tea leaves, and more obscure rituals involving bones and spiders. A solid bibliography points readers to monographs on particular topics ; the index allows users to locate information specific to a country, symbol, or rite ; and a brief glossary is also included. Practitioners of the divination arts will need more depth, but libraries without a treatment of this subject (e.g., Divining the Future, Facts on File, 1995) will find this a readable and comprehensive choice.
