Witchcraft and Demonology in South-West England, 1640-1789 (Palgrave Historical Studies in Witchcraft and Magic)
Using south-western England as a focus for considering the continued place of witchcraft and demonology in provincial culture in the period between the English and French revolutions, Barry shows how witch-beliefs were intricately woven into the fabric of daily life, even at a time when they arguably ceased to be of interest to the educated.
