Vampires and Vampirism is one of the very few books ever written with a scientific approach to the subject of vampires and vampirism. Wright explores the vampire phenomena in different parts of the world and in different times in our history, starting with ancient Babylonia, Assyria and Greece. This special revised VAMzzz Publishing edition is completed with a Post Scriptum with biographical information about the writer and an article on the vampire in Russia and Slavonic countries based on Muscovite folk-lore by W. R. S. Ralston, M.A.
