really liked it
bookshelves: france, witchcraft

Man's easy willingness to simply accept rumor and gossip as gospel without question and just allow bad things to happen supposedly in retribution. This one focuses on anti-semitism although it could be any group and those who don't like them and have a whole lot of "good reasons" why not. Around the Dreyfus affair in France, late 1800's early 1900's France. Supposed ritual killing of a baby gets things started. Really follows people and the thought pressures of the events tangents involved. Fast moving and great characterisations.
