Abstract:

From earliest times, tales of the restless dead and their fellow travelers have terrified mankind. Whether around a remote campfire or in the middle of a bustling city, the unquiet spirits and attendant creatures that have tormented humanity since the prehistoric darkness still have the power to strike fear in our hearts. Encyclopedia of the Undead traces those shadowy entities--vampires, werewolves, ghouls and monsters--that inhabit our most frightening tales. Drawing on a wide range of beliefs and literature, it traces these horrors from their earliest recorded inceptions and charts their impact upon the human psyche.--From publisher description.
