Synopsis: In the first edition of the Bancroft Prize-winning Entertaining Satan, John Putnam Demos presented an entirely new perspective on American witchcraft. By investigating the surviving historical documents of over a hundred actual witchcraft cases, he vividly recreated the world of New England during the witchcraft trials and brought to light fascinating information on the role of witchcraft in early American culture. Now Demos has revisited his original work and updated it to illustrate why these early Americans' strange views on witchcraft still matter to us today. He provides a new preface that puts forth a broader overview of witchcraft and looks at its place around the world--from ancient times right up to the present.

Vividly illustrates what made certain individuals vulnerable to charges of witchcraft." - The New York Times Book Review * "History in such capable hands becomes much more than a chronicle: it makes the past seem as vivid & dimensional, & every bit as compelling, as the present." - Newsweek * "With the publication of this book, the historical study of American witchcraft finally comes of age." - American Historical Rev. * "Beautifully written, exhaustively researched." - Virginia Quarterly Review * "Well written & easy to read . . . More than a history of witchcraft. It is placed within the wider social context & is thus a history of early New England culture . . . Very well documented." - History: Reviews of New Books * "A work that sets the stage for the eruption in Salem & promises to transform the terms in which we understand that extravagant episode . . . A rewarding & fascinating achievement well worth reading." - American History Illustrated. Bookseller Inventory # 007341
