Reviews

This comprehensive collection of carefully selected documents and published primary materials, coupled with judicious and informative introductions, will help modern readers understand the seemingly inexplicable and persistent popular phenomenon of belief in witchcraft from the seventeenth century into more modern times -- Mary Beth Norton (author of In the Devil's Snare)
Fascinating and insightful. With her usual skill, Katherine Howe navigates the winding path leading to Salem's hysteria and beyond. A must-read for anyone who wants to know not only what happened but also how and why -- Brunonia Barry (author of The Lace Reader)
