Three centuries ago in Puritan Massachusetts nearly 200 people were imprisoned, 20 were executed, and eight died in jail during a year of mounting terror. As Robinson shows, a small group of men in Salem Village started the witch hunt as a personal vendetta, after which, with the collusion of high office holders in Boston, the scope of the trials was extended to uphold rigid Puritan religious and moral codes in an age of dawning scientific enlightenment. Fascinating. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
