This excellent little book is a wonderful introduction to the story of the trial of the witches of Pendle in 1612. In a very lively and readable style, Christine Goodier provides a who's who of the events, as well as an interesting angle on the trials themselves. She emphasises that the accused were merely flesh and blood, not demons, arguing that they were poor, uneducated people who were at worst misguided. Her inevitable conclusion is that a terrible injustice was done 400 years ago when they were famously convicted of witchcraft and hanged.

Quakerism and Quakers have had an impact on British and American society. This book is a social history of a local meeting in Bolton, arguable the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and the heart of many significant moments in the life of the religious Society of Friends the Civial War and its legacy. This is not primarily a study of large, momentous, world-shattering events but rather the quiet though steady heartbeat of a reigious movement over the course of three centuries.
How does the brain code and process incoming information, how does it recog- nize a certain object, how does a certain Gestalt come into our awareness? One of the key issues to conscious realization of an object, of a Gestalt is the attention de- voted to the corresponding sensory input which evokes the neural pattern underly- ing the Gestalt. This requires that the attention be devoted to one set of objects at a time. However, the attention may be switched quickly between different objects or ongoing input processes. It is to be expected that such mechanisms are reflected in the neural dynamics: Neurons or neuronal assemblies which pertain to one object may fire, possibly in rapid bursts at a time. Such firing bursts may enhance the synaptic strength in the corresponding cell assembly and thereby form the substrate of short-term memory. However, we may well become aware of two different objects at a time. How can we avoid that the firing patterns which may relate to say a certain type of move- ment (columns in V5) or to a color (V 4) of one object do not become mixed with those of another object? Such a blend may only happen if the presentation times be- come very short (below 20-30 ms). One possibility is that neurons pertaining to one cell assembly fire syn- chronously. Then different cell assemblies firing at different rates may code different information.
