The Great Cat Massacre: And Other Episodes in French Cultural History: Robert Darnton

The story of the great cat massacre in which cats found guilty of witchcraft were sentenced them to death was introduced to me through a bit of spoken word within a counter culture film. The strangeness of such a trial got me to search online for information about the massacre, I quickly came across this book. Curiouser and curiouser!
