Offering a dialogue between anthropology and literature, culture, and media, this book presents fine-grained ethnographic vignettes of monsters dwelling in the contemporary world. These monsters hail from Aboriginal Australia, the Pacific, Asia, and Europe, and their presence is inextricably intertwined with the lives of those they haunt.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This collection of twelve papers is `the first anthropological volume bringing participant-observation-based accounts and analyses of disparate creatures together under the umbrella term monster' ... . I would describe this volume as a collection of ethnographically well-informed essays that should be of interest to anyone involved in the cross-cultural study of epistemology and ontology." (Gregory Forth, The Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology, Vol. 18 (2), February, 2017)
