Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first definitive work on werewolfery, this book was written by a venerable author of occult studies. Unsurpassed in its sheer scope and depth, it employs a theological and philosophical approach, incorporating an extensive range of historical documentation and folklore. Summers examines the supernatural practice of shapeshifting, notes the finer distinctions between werewolfery and lycanthropy, and explores the differences of opinion on exactly how ordinary humans are transformed into creatures of "unbridled cruelty, bestial ferocity, and ravening hunger." His Gothic style, rich in fascinating examples and anecdotes, offers compelling fare for lovers of esoteric lore.

Book News Annotation:

Prolific occult writer Summers (1880-1948) explores legends of half-human, half-wolf creatures in selected parts of Europe. Because of the plethora of information, he limited the study from the world to Europe, then to the Catholic Mediterranean region, the western archipelago, France, and the north and Russia and Germany. He also includes chapters on lycanthropy and the science and practice of the werewolf. The 1933 original was published by Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner, and Company in London as The Werewolf.
