MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a fascinating study of blood symbolism in a variety of vampiric contexts, which demonstrates an impressive breadth of cultural understanding from the medieval to the present day. The analysis of biomedicine and its relationship to a neoliberal political agenda is masterly. It is to the author's credit that they bring together so many diverse, but related, strands in such a convincing and intellectually exciting way. This is an important book for anyone interested in the political agendas of our age." - Dr Andrew Smith, Reader in Nineteenth Century English Literature, University of Sheffield and past president of the International Gothic Association
