10 WILLIAMS, SELMA R. and, PAMELA J. WILLIAMS Riding the nightmare. Women and witchcraft.
New York Atheneum, 1978 0689306334 / 9780689306334 Hard Cover 
Illustrated with old engravings and paintings. From the dj: The Salem witchcraft hysteria has been studied often, but few people have looked at the number of women involved and asked why. Salem was not the beginning. . . Using legends, myth, folklore, history, politics, and common sense, Selma Williams shows that from the late Middle Ages until the time of the Salem trials, men used the threat of witchcraft as a way of keeping women from power and from reaping the rewards of their own labors. When men were most fearful of the future, accusations of witchcraft against women were most likely to appear. To examine the historical association of women and witchcraft is to see most clearly the social focus that through the centuries has condemned women to ignorance and dependency.
