Reviews

"A book that will rank with the best, a book that shows how much we still may learn from these people. This is not simply a monograph on witchcraft but a major attempt to understand the kind of society and the kind of culture in which witchcraft had a place. Rich in insights."-The New York Review of Books
"A remarkable piece of scholarship. Vividly illustrates what made certain individuals vulnerable to charges of witchcraft."-The New York Times Book Review
"History in such capable hands becomes much more than a chronicle: it makes the past seem as vivid and dimensional, and every bit as compelling, as the present."-Newsweek
"With the publication of this book, the historical study of American witchcraft finally comes of age."-American Historical Review
"Beautifully written and exhaustively researched."-Virginia Quarterly Review
"Well written and easy to read.... More than a history of witchcraft. It is placed within the wider social context and is thus a history of early New England culture.... Very well documented."-History: Reviews of New Books
"A work that sets the stage for the eruption in Salem and promises to transform the terms in which we understand that extravagant episode.... A rewarding and fascinating achievement well worth reading."-American History Illustrated
"Demos has done an excellent job of researching a subject of great interest today."-William C. Viser, Ouachita Baptist University
"An ambitious, informative work."-Paul Tiverow, Missouri Southern State College
"Brilliant."-Herbert Cederberg, University of Wisconsin
