if you are seriously interested in the 16/17 century witchcraft trials then you should get this book. It contains articles by all the major researchers and the second edition brings the book up to date with articles from the current century.

The articles cover a wide range of topics.. This is a book which takes a while to read but is well worth the time. The bibliography is very useful for further research.

This is a nice guide for history buffs. Fairly well organized and easy to understand, I would recommend this to people who would like to know more about the history of witchcraft issues in Europe.

HASH(0x93772fc0) out of 5 stars A bit hard for a daily read 27 Mar. 2015
By macissej - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written in a very convluted manner, makes it hard for an everyday read. More academic than anything.
