Bloodsucking villain to guilt-ridden loner-what has inspired the redemption of the vampire in fiction and film? What is Vampire Personality Disorder? What causes a physical addiction to another persons blood? Are there any boundaries in the polysexual world of vampires? How could a vampire hide in todays world of advanced forensic science? What is the psychopathology of the vampire? What happens in the brain of a vampires victim? Since Bram Stokers Dracula was published in 1897, the concept of the vampire has evolved from supernatural creature of the night to reluctant bloodsucker to the sympathetic vampire of todays popular culture. Featuring interviews with forensic experts, creative artists, and real-life bloodsuckers, The Science of Vampires offers a fascinating investigation into the myths and realities of the vampire, exploring every aspect of the dark force that has played host to our fears of infections, depletions, alien influence, and disease. From vampirisms roots in ancient legend, through its post-modern redefinition in contemporary films and novels, to its scientific evolution as a very real mental disorder, Ramsland proves just how immortal, enigmatic, and seductive the lure of blood can be.
