Miller's acclaimed play is a dramatization of the Salem witch trials which serve as an allegory for the Red Scare of the early 1950s and associated mass cultural and political hysteria instigated and manipulated by Senator Joseph McCarthy and his followers. Widely considered to be one of the cornerstone works of American drama, the play is is still powerful and resonant today. A very attractive copy of this American classic.
