by Clark, Stuart

Condition: New in New dust jacket


London: Macmillan. New in New dust jacket. 2001. First Edition. Hardcover. 033379348X . Book is new, with light shelf wear to the dustjacket involving 2 small tears to upper spine and light scuffing to rear - otherwise as new. " Different conceptions of the world and of reality have made witchcraft possible in some societies and impossible in others. How did the people of early modern Europe experience it, what was it, and what was its place in their culture? ......; 8vo; The news essays in this collection illustrate the latest trends in witchcraft research and in cultural history in general. After three decades in which the social analysis of witchcraft accusations has dominated the subject, they turn instead to its significance and meaning as a cultural phenomenon? To the "languages" of witchcraft, rather than its causes. As a result, witchcraft seems less startling than it once was, yet more revealing of the world in which it occurred. " .
