Book of Werewolves
Sabine Baring-Gould (au); Nigel Suckling (in). A werewolf, or lycanthrope, is a man or woman who changes into the form of a wolf to gratify an insatiable desire for the taste of human flesh. According to popular folklore, this change is brought about either by magical means or as a result of harsh judgment from the gods in punishment for a great offense. Baring-Gould (1834-1924) has drawn on these various mythologies & shows the legends to be a way of describing the barely dormant cruelty & bloodlust in humankind lying just below the surface veneer of respectability. This is a facsimile edition of the classic work which was first published in 1865 & remains a standard reference on the subject.
