Appropriate as a supplementary text for undergraduate survey courses in U.S. history and Colonial American history. This book provides a much needed synthesis of the major schools of thought and recent scholarship on the Salem witch trials. It places the trials into context of the Great European Witch Hunt and of witch hunting in 17th century New England within an accessible narrative format that is as dramatic as it is informative.  Through its narrative format it captures the the drama of the time and the event.
