A brilliant example of small-town thinking,
This review is from: The Crucible: A Play in Four Acts (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Great story. This illustrates much in human behaviour around "witch hunts", be this communism, witchcraft, or whatever.
It is NOT historical fact, but a view of the small-town thinking, suspicious, back-stabbing, jealousy and greedy nature of characters which can be surfaced by opportunity. Wonderful scenes of hysteria which made me laugh too.
Easy to follow, but with something to dig your teeth into.
