In Detestable and Wicked Arts, Paul B. Moyer places early New England's battle against black magic in a transatlantic perspective. Moyer provides an accessible and comprehensive examination of witch prosecutions in the Puritan colonies that discusses how their English inhabitants understood the crime of witchcraft, why some people ran a greater risk of being accused of occult misdeeds, and how gender intersected with witch-hunting. Focusing on witchcraft cases in New England between roughly 1640 and 1670, Detestable and Wicked Arts highlights ties between witch-hunting in the New and Old Worlds. Informed by studies on witchcraft in early modern Europe, Moyer presents a useful synthesis of scholarship on occult crime in New England and makes new and valuable contributions to the field.

Drawn up from published and other well authenticated records of the alleged operations of witches and their instigator, the devil. This is the first attempt, so far as is known to the writer, to collect together the annals of witchcraft in the United States. It has doubtless been a question with all readers of accounts of the witchcraft cases which have occurred in America, how it happened that they were so similar to those which took place in England.
