This is the first book to consider the general course and significance of the European witch craze of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries since H.R. Trevor-Roper's classic and pioneering study appeared in the 1970s. Drawing upon the advances in historical and social-science scholarship of the past decade and a half, Joseph Klaits integrates the recent appreciations of witchcraft in regional studies, the history of popular culture, anthropology, sociology, and psychology to better illuminate the place of witch hunting in the context of social, political, economic and religious change. Joseph Klaits is Associate Professor of History at Oakland University. He is the author of Printed Propaganda under Louis XIV and many articles on early modern European history, and co-editor of Animals and Man in Historical Perspective.
