Publisher's Summary

Werewolves have long been a staple of popular culture. In the 19th and 20th century, there were countless books, plays, and films about people who turned into wolves or wolf-like humanoids and went on rampages. The figure of the werewolf is so familiar that people across the world are familiar with the folklore, and the beliefs that they transform during a full moon, can only be stopped with silver, and transmit their disease by biting their victims. 

In fact, those beliefs were not originally part of werewolf folklore, but later embellishments by artists. The belief in lycanthropy is far older and more complex than most people suspect, dating all the way back to antiquity, and werewolves were once assumed to be very real. Indeed, people were even put on trial and executed because the courts of law were convinced they could change their form and kill innocent people. For thousands of years, werewolves have represented a strange and ancient tradition that still echoes through culture to this day. 

Werewolves: The Legends and Folk Tales About Humans Shapeshifting into Wolves chronicles the ancient traditions and origins behind the belief in the existence of werewolves. You will learn about werewolves like never before.
