The witchcraft trials in Salern. Massachusetts in the seventeenth century are probably the most famous of all such trials. Nowadays the standard view is that of Arthur Miller in The Crucible: that the accused were the victims of bigotry, were persecuted by fanatical men. And that witchcraft was not practiced. that there was no menace to society. This book is a challenge to those views. Chadwick Hansen sets out to prove that 'There was witchcraft at Salern. and it worked, It did real harm to its victims and there was every reason to regard it as a criminal offence, 'It worked then as it works now in witchcraft societies. , , producing hysterical symptoms as a result of the victim's fear, and sometimes, , , even producing death'.
