This is a highly readable overview of one of the most horrifying episodes in American history. By placing the distant period of the Salem witch trials in the larger context of more contemporary eruptions of mass hysteria and intolerance, author Frances Hill has created a work as thought-provoking as it is emotionally powerful. (2002 edition, paperback)
“Impeccably researched and intelligently written.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review
