Review:

This thought-provoking volume provides a fascinating overview of monsters in a variety of social and academic contexts... Useful for undergraduate and graduate seminars and as a resource for advanced scholars... Highly recommended. All academic levels/libraries.'
Choice

'This volume awakens the monster as an academic topic. Combining John Block Friedman's historical-literary approach with Jeffrey J. Cohen's theoretical concerns, Asa Simon Mittman and Peter Dendle have marshalled chapters that comprise a seminal work for everyone interested in the monstrous. Wide-ranging chapters work through various historical and geographic views of monstrosity, from the African Mami Wata to Pokemon. Theoretical chapters consider contemporary views of what a monster is and why we care about them as we do. Taken together, the essays in The Ashgate Research Companion to Monsters and the Monstrous reveal that monsters appear in every culture and haunt each of us in different ways, or as Mittman says, the monstrous 'calls into question our (their, anyone's) epistemological worldview, highlights its fragmentary and inadequate nature, and thereby asks us [...] to acknowledge the failures of our systems of categorization.'
David Sprunger, Concordia College, Minnesota, USA

'An impressively broad and thoughtful collection of the ways in which many cultures, ancient and modern, have used monsters to think about what it means to be human. Lavishly illustrated and ambitious in scope, this book enlarges the reader's imagination.'
Professor Lorraine Daston, Director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Germany

'This is a huge work... Not surely for the paws and pelts cryptozoolgist, but of value to anyone with a serious interest in the monsters of the human imagination.'
Magonia Review of Books

'... a work of considerable erudition and scholarship, suitably footnoted and indexed. Ranging over art history, religious studies, literature, classics, history, anthropology and cultural studies, The Ashgate Companion reflects the truly multi-disciplinary nature of the topic... it will become an essential academic reference source for the 'monstrous'.
Sydney Morning Herald

'This is a multidisciplinary volume illustrating the richness and diversity of monster studies as a discipline. The contributors of this volume are widely disparate in theoretical and scholarly background, allowing for a rich and diverse reading of the monstrous subject... They illustrate that there is not one monolithic theory of the monstrous but that, much like the monstrous figures it examines, monstrosity theory is widely disparate, theoretically diverse, and represents a hybridisation of multiple genres.'
Lo Sguardo

'Throughout, the essays refer to and expand on themes and ideas discussed elsewhere. By the end of the collection what we are faced with is an excellent example of the research in progress within the field of monster studies, in depth enough and with sufficient variety to appeal to monster scholars yet equally accessible to the newcomer to the field.' --Kelvingrove Review
