Summary

Summary

Author David K. Fremon examines the controversial period in colonial America during which mass hysteria led to a series of outrageous trials that resulted in the conviction and execution of twenty people for supposedly practicing witchcraft, and the imprisonment of one hundred fifty others on charges of being witches. Highlighting the key people and events involved, Fremon explains the unique circumstances that existed in colonial Massachusetts and Salem Village at the time of the trials and considers many possible reasons for which the witchcraft trials may have occurred.
