Just a Bite jellemzők

Historian and transylvania traveler István Pivárcsi addresses the essentiels in more than thirtybitesize chapters: How did vampire legends emerge in Eatern Europe? Did a disfiguring illness play a part? To what lengths did people go to keep vampires at bay? Who was the real Vlad the Impaler - and what tortures truly titillated him? Did "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Báthory deserve her reputation? What other bad beings have melded with vampires in our imaginations? How have the undead come truly alive in literature and film?
A chronology of historical events and a glossary of terms further make "Just a bite" a must for anyone who seeks a user-friendly short reference to the undead that separates fact from fiction.
