The secret history of vampires : their multiple forms and hidden purposes

Lecouteux, Claude (Author). Graham, Jon E. (Added Author).

Summary: The countless movies and books inspired by vampires who have a predilection for human blood are based on incidents recorded as fact in newspapers and judicial archives in the centuries preceding the works of Bram Stoker and other writers. Digging through these forgotten records, Claude Lecouteux unearths a very different figure of the vampire.
