Inhaltsangabe: The Devil in Massachusetts: A Modern Inquiry into the Salem Witch Trials
From the Publisher: This historical narrative of the Salem witch trials takes its dialogue from actual trial records but applies modern psychiatric knowledge to the witchcraft hysteria. Starkey's sense of drama also vividly recreates the atmosphere of pity and terror that fostered the evil and suffering of this human tragedy.
