In Vanished Kingdoms, he roams across the European continent to pick out states that don’t exist on modern maps and are often missing in the popular consciousness: Burgundy for example.

        Although magic and witchcraft had existed since antiquity, early modern Europe underwent a growth in anxiety about witches and their practices that led to a period of heightened witch hunting. Social and economic problems, changes to the legal system, and religious upheaval all served as necessary preconditions for the age of witch-hunts.   Without addressing these issues, Europe and its cities—the crown jewels of global urbanity—could face a bleak future. Joel Kotkin is the presidential fellow in urban futures at Chapman University and executive director of the Center for Opportunity Urbanism. His latest book is The Human City: Urbanism for the Rest of Us.
