"If you think belief in the occult and supernatural faded in the late 17th century after the murderous Salem Witch Trials, think again. America went through a second wave of paranormal beliefs in the late 20th century, resulting in disastrous moral panics over Satanic cults and recovered memories of sexual abuse. Beliefs have consequences and George Case has documented this period in exquisite detail and compelling prose, the best book I've read all year." -- Michael Shermer, Publisher of Skeptic magazine, monthly columnist for Scientific American, author of "Why People Believe Weird Things & the Moral Arc"
