In an illuminating examination of the Salem Witch Trials of 1691, Hill places the horrifying events in a larger context of mass hysteria and intolerance. She tries to understand the motives of the accusers and those who conducted the trials. She humanizes them as well as those who suffered from the accusations, placing the events in social, political and religious context. An outstanding attempt to explain and understand this dreadful episode in early American history. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
