"Bewitched and Bedeviled makes a major contribution to our understanding of possession in early modern Europe and in general. It develops an original interpretation based on a well-grounded synthesis of recent work on the neurocognitive aspects of emotion, anger, and rage in particular, and extensive use of published pamphlets describing possession cases from the time. It will be welcomed by scholars working on early modern possession, popular religion, witchcraft, and magic as well as the history and neurophysiology of emotion." - Edward Bever, Professor of History, SUNY Old Westbury, USA and author of The Realities of Witchcraft and Popular Magic in Early Modern Europe
"Uszkalo's brilliant synthesis represents an all too rare transdisciplinary approach between cognitive neuroscience and social history. Both fields will be richer for it." - James L Olds, Professor of Molecular Neuroscience, George Mason University, USA
