Overview

This book provides a one volume narrative of Salem Witch Trials that combines scholarly research with a dramatic narrative. It places the trials into the historical context of the Great European Witch Hunt and of the social and cultural context of witch hunting in 17th century New England.

The book presents events in a narrative format that delivers the drama of the trials and leaves readers free to explore specific topics of their choosing in greater depth through an analysis of key issues at the end of most chapters. It includes a chapter on the Great European Witch Hunt which puts the Salem Witch Trials into historical context as well as a chapter on witch hunting in 17th century New England which provides an immediate social and cultural context. MARKETS: A fascinating and relevant book for any reader who wishes to learn more about this much misunderstood event in early American history.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Provides a synthesis of the major schools of thought on the Salem witch trials. Places the events in a historical context, both of 17th century New England and of the great European witch-hunt, which lasted some three centuries. Employs a narrative format intended to make the subject more accessible and recapture some of its drama. Topics include the origins of the trials, the rapid decline in the number of witch trials in Europe and New England after 1692, and reasons for the continuing popular fascination with the events in Salem.
