9780700608591: The Salem Witchcraft Trials: A Legal History

In late-seventeenth-century New England, the eternal battle between God and Satan moved into the courtroom. Between January 1692 and May 1693 in Salem, Massachusetts, neighbors turned against neighbors and children against parents with accusations of witchcraft, and nineteen people were hanged for having made pacts with the devil. Peter Charles Hoffer tells the real story of how religious beliefs, superstitions, clan disputes, and Anglo-American law and custom created an epidemic of accusations that resulted in the investigation of nearly two hundred colonists and, for many, the ordeal of trial and incarceration. Along the way, he shows how many rights we take for granted today - such as rules of evidence and a defendant's right to legal counsel - did not apply in colonial times. A concise history written expressly for students and general readers, The Salem Witchcraft Trials sheds important light on early American law and tempers our horror of these infamous proceedings with sympathy for a people who gave in to panic in the face of a harsh and desolate existence.

Description du livre University Press of Kansas, United States, 1997. Paperback. État : New. New.. 213 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In late 17th-century New England, the eternal battle between God and Satan was brought into the courtroom. Between January 1692 and May 1693 in Salem, Massachusetts, neighbours turned against neighbours and children against parents with accusations of witchcraft, and 19 people were hanged for having made pacts with the devil. Peter Charles Hoffer, a historian long familiar with the Salem witchcraft trials, now reexamines this notorious episode in American history. He tells the real story of how religious beliefs, superstitions, clan disputes and Anglo-American law and custom created an epidemic of accusations that resulted in the investigation of nearly 200 colonists and, for many, the ordeal of trial and incarceration. He also examines life during this crisis period of New England history - a time beset by Indian wars, disease, severe weather, and challenges to Puritan hegemony - to show how an atmosphere of paranoia contributed to this outbreak of persecution. Hoffer examines many aspects of this history, from accusations to grand jury investigations to the conduct of the trials themselves. He shows how rights we take for granted today - such as rules of evidence and a defendant s right to legal counsel - did not exist in colonial times, and he demonstrates how these cases relate to current instances of children accusing adults of abuse. The Salem Witchcraft Trials , a concise history written expressly for students and general readers, sheds important light on the period and shows that our horror of these infamous proceedings must be tempered with sympathy for a people who gave in to panic in the face of a harsh and desolate existence.
