IX, 228 pp, list of illustrations, bibliography, index. All the illustrations are in black and white be they photographs, or reproductions of old drawings. Illustrated dustwrapper. The slightest signs of wear are evident along the top edge of the dustwrapper. Using legends, myth, folklore, the history, politics and commonsense, the author shows that from the late Middle Ages until the time of the Salem trials, men used the threat of witchcraft as a way of keeping women from power and from reaping the rewards of their own labours. To examine the historical association of women and witchcraft is to see most clearly the social focus that through the centuries has condemned women to ignorance and dependency.
