Werewolves: A Field Guide to Shapeshifters, Lycanthropes, and Man-Beasts
From the Publisher:
“Most of us are familiar with the idea of a werewolf—someone who can change, deliberately or unwillingly, into a ravenous creature—but is there justification for such a belief? And if so, how is it achieved—through magical potions or by the light of the Full Moon? Or is the whole thing simply delusion, the product of a disturbed mind? In this book, Dr. Bob Curran examines the psychological roots of this profane linking of human and beast. Do the origins of such a belief lie in the supernatural world, or are there other explanations? How has the discovery of feral children shaped our ideas of human-beasts? The author also considers the use of genetic engineering—in this case, the fusing of human and animal genes in order to cure human diseases and alleviate suffering. Is the idea of man turning into beast really so farfetched?”
