Witches And Witch-Hunts

Witches And Witch-Hunts

by Milton Meltzer Illustrated by Barry Moser

In this fascinating, thought-provoking book, master historian Milton Meltzer examines witch-hunts from around the world. From fifteenth-century France to Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, from Adolf Hitler to Joseph McCarthy, devastating witch-hunts were fed by superstition and have threatened societies with their hysteria.

Here is a book that presents the truth behind the frenzy, taking an engaging yet sobering look at prejudice, discrimination, and murder practiced in the name of the betterment of society.
