Testimonials


“This is a clear and thought-provoking introduction to the Salem witchcraft trials that will allow students to grapple with the events' complexities without losing sight of the human element, revealed in the documents in terms both poignant and unsettling.”

“For undergraduates of all levels, Godbeer provides an excellent introduction of a very complex set of ideas and events and provides the essential documents that will allow students to develop their own conclusions about what happened in Salem in 1692 -- and more important, why the trials happened as they did.”
-- James H. Williams, Middle Tennessee State University
 
"This student-friendly volume combines historical analysis and context with engaging primary sources to guide students through the events of 1692 and their aftermath. Through the sets of sources on six of the accused witches, students will get a glimpse into the minds of the accusers, accused, neighbors, ministers, and magistrates who struggled to make sense of the events that were unfolding around them and grappled with how to reunite a community in its wake."
