    Abstract

    This editorial makes use of the EU Referendum to discuss the presence of magic in contemporary societies. It analysis magic in terms of magicians, magical representations, and magical rites – as originally expounded by Malinowski and Mauss – and argues that magic is to be found not only in political activities, but also in the worlds of finance, medicine, law, media, and various forms of cultural production.
