9780300164817: Vampires, Burial, and Death: Folklore and Reality; With a New Introduction
Críticas:

"'This study's comprehensiveness and the author's bone-dry wit make this compelling reading, not just for folklorists, but for anyone interested in a time when the dead wouldn't stay dead.' Booklist 'Barber's inquiry into vampires, fact and fiction, is a gem in the literature of debunking... and a convincing exercise in mental archaeology.' Roy Porter, Nature 'A splendid book about the undead, illuminated by the findings of morbid anatomy... The main value of this most interesting book is to remind us how far we have come in our ability to explain the world and how this has released us from at least some terrors.' Anthony Daniels, Spectator 'This book is fascinating reading for physicians and anthropologists as well as anyone interested in folklore.' R. Ted Steinbock, M.D., Journal of the American Medical Association 'A fascinating and pain-staking (sorry!) thesis, which welds together folklore, epidemic panic, communal stupidity, and forensic and funereal science.' Huw Knight, New Scientist"

Críticas:

"This book is fascinating reading for physicians and anthropologists as well as anyone interested in folklore."-R. Ted Steinbock, MD, Journal of the American Medical Association -- R. Ted Steinbock, MD Journal of the American Medical Association "Since this is essentially a scholarly work on human decomposition and historical attitudes to it, it is remarkable how often Paul Barber manages to be funny... His insights, medical and cultural, hold a chastening fascination."-Hugh Barnacle, Independent -- Hugh Barnacle Independent "Barber's inquiry into vampires, fact and fiction, is a gem in the literature of debunking... Barber's book is a convincing exercise in mental archaeology..."-Roy Porter, Nature -- Roy Porter Nature

In this engrossing book, Paul Barber surveys centuries of folklore about vampires and offers the first scientific explanation for the origins of the vampire legends. From the tale of a sixteenth-century shoemaker from Breslau whose ghost terrorized everyone in the city, to the testimony of a doctor who presided over the exhumation and dissection of a graveyard full of Serbian vampires, his book is fascinating reading.
