About this item

When most people think of zombies they likely recall a book or movie that frightened and/or entertained them whether from an earlier time or from the more current revival of the genre in the last 10 years or so. But Bishop and an increasing number of academics are mining today's "Golden Age" of the zombie for the anxieties, tensions, and other cultural reflections those films and books reflect. He contends that zombies, which originated as Haitian folklife, are now post-911 allegories of much of what is wrong with the world: terrorist attacks, drug fads, pandemics, natural disasters, and more.
