In the first edition of the Bancroft Prize-winning Entertaining Satan, John Putnam Demos presented an entirely fresh 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 By investigating the surviving historical documents of over a hundred actual witchcraft cases, he vividly recreated the world of New England during the witchcraft trials and brought to light fascinating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 to illustrate why these early Americans' strange views on witchcraft continue to matter to us today. In a new preface he puts forth a broader overview of witchcraft and reflects on recent breakthroughs in the study of witchcraft. Book jacket.
