Setting aside considerations about nursing history, for me the real value of this is to provide hard-to-find historical background on this aspect of women's history. So much nonsense is floating around (and published) about witchcraft, both pro and con, that we are fortunate that this basic work is still available to us. Highly recommended to anyone interested in women's history - as well as in going beyond wishful thinking and fantasy.

I have been using the material in this little book for years in parent education workshops. Audiences find many of its facts meaningful in understanding how the role of women in medicine has evolved over centuries.

I was a bit surprised at this book being less than 60 pages. However it did pack a lot of information in those pages. I would like to see an expanded version of this book published, especially with further discussion of the impact of the Malleus Maleficarum on the treatment of women through the centuries.
