Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0880334878, Hardcover)

In 1929 no fewer than fifty inhabitants of the Hungarian village of Tiszazug were poisoned with arsenic, ostensibly by female relatives. While focusing on the trials which resulted in several death sentences and more acquittals, Bodó places the entire case within the context of the cultural differences between urban and rural Hungarian societies and the perceptions of and prejudices against peasant culture exhibited during the several trials lasting nearly two years.
