Penguin, London, 1987.   Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Good/. . 126 pages. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. Tanned pages with foxing on end pages. Clear, self-adhesive laminate to covers/boards. Previous owner's name in ink. Page edges foxed. Arthur Miller's classic parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witch-hunt of 1692 - 'one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history' - and the American anti-communist purges led by Senator McCarthy in the 1950s. The story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice, culminating in a violent climax, is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations. A depiction of innocent men and women destroyed by malicious rumour, The Crucible is also a powerful indictment of McCarthyism and the 'frontier mentality' of Cold War America. Quantity Available: 1.
