A Delusion of Satan: Full Story of the Salem Witch Trials by Frances Hill [used-very good]

Condition: read, slightly worn around the edges but no major marks or damage.

Frances Hill describes how a group of girls, stifled with the rigidity of their puritan lives, started an innocent game of fortune-telling, which rapidly descended into collective hysteria, violent fits and the accusation that many of their neighbours were witches. It is the story of how more than 100 men, women and children languished in Salem prison on the charge of witchcraft. This work tells in clear and factual terms what actually happended in Salem, drawing on insights from contemporary psychology and feminism.
