Descrizione prodotto


Part of the enduring fascination of the Salem witch trials is the fact that, to date, no one theory has been able to fully explain the events that ravaged Salem in 1692. Countless causes, from ergot-infected rye to actual demonic posession, have been offered to explain why the accusations and erratic behavior of seven village girls left hundreds accused, over 20 dead, and the townspeople of eastern Massachusetts shaken. Through a multitude of resources, this authoritative reference guide explores the Salem Witchcraft episode, including the religious and political climate in Puritan New England, and accessibly summarizes the major interpretations of, and reactions to, the events, from the seventeenth century until the present day. Biographical sketches of each person central to the events—including afflicted girls, victims, ministers, and magistrates—add a human element, and primary document excerpts—including petitions, letters, and revealing testimony—give a firsthand glimpse of the proceedings in the players' own words. A chronology of events, a glossary of terms, an annotated bibliography, and over 25 photos make this a must-have resource for students of American history, criminal justice, gender issues, and culture.

A must-have for any student of American history, this resource gives a unique glimpse into the 17th century politics, religious culture, and gender issues that created the Salem witchcraft episode, and gives context to an impact that still resonates today, in everything from modern political life to popular culture.

HASH(0x9b7b0bac) su 5 stelle A solid reference work 11 febbraio 2008
Di AJNDK - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
Despite the fact that the typeface on cover of this book is perhaps too reminiscent of Bram Stoker's classic novel, this is a solid, "no nonsense" reference work. It does not attempt to sway or influence the reader's opinion of the Salem witchcraft trials episode, but instead offers a precise, objective overview of all its events, complete with a wide variety of academic interpretations, representative original documents, key biographies and various other related bonus materials. When used in a classroom setting, or as a general reference on the subject, this edition eliminates the need for separately published collections of primary sources -- an indispensable quality for any introductory book.

Di Mary-Ellen L. Smiley - Pubblicato su

As an educator for 25 years teaching colonial New England, I was excited to see this book being published. I received my copy and I feel it is the best resource there is on the witchcraft trials. All the information you need is here.
HASH(0x9b728c6c) su 5 stelle THE REASONS BEHIND THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS 4 gennaio 2013
Di Charles A Tyler - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I purchased this book to add to my library of books devoted to the subject of the Salem Witchcraft Trials. My interest in this subject centers on the fact that several of my distant ancesgtors were both accusers and accused of witchcraft during this black period in American history. The book is well written and contains all of the expected reference citations. However, I was disappointed in the minimum content considering the breadth of available subject material. With that complaint aside, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the Salem Witchcraft Trials.

This book is a very good choice to start with for anyone who is interested in what took place during the Salem Witch Trials in Salem, MA 1692. It offers fact of the happenings in Salem Village at the time and also offers the speculations of others who have studied the subject with leaving room for the reader to make their own thoughts of what happened during this dreadful time in New England history.

This book, although very informative was not well organized. But it helped me immensely with my paper that I wrote for history. Even though I had to search for most of the information, I eventually did find it and it had some very interesting paintings and artifacts. I would definitely recommend this book as research material. I ended up donating the book to my local library.
