Overview

Alan MacFarlane's Witchcraft in Tudor and Stuart England is the classic regional and comparative study of early modern witchcraft. The history of witchcraft continues to attract attention today, sparking discussion and contentious debates. The methodology and conclusions of this book have not only made a great impact on witchcraft studies but it's also done so for the entire approach to social and cultural history. The book provides an important case study on Essex and draws comparisons with other regions of early modern England. This second edition is strengthened by a new historiographical introduction by James Sharpe of the University of York, placing the book in the context of the considerable fresh research of the last 30 years.
