about this item

The author examines the socio/political roles vampires play in popular culture, as sexual seducers, monsters, protectors, and drainers of energy. He defines vampires and details their role in history, as well as horror and vampire iconography and cultural metaphors, then looks at the themes of vampires as seducers, gender, vampires as symbols for monstrous behavior, psychic or energy vampires, and vampire slayers, from their introduction into pop culture up to the present, and from ancient mythology, to literature of the 18th and 19th centuries, to recent representations.
