A Cultural History

New Arrivals, 2nd floor

This time of year some of you may be binge-watching zombie shows on Netflix to relieve stress. Add some scholarly analysis to your love of zombie pop culture and you may have the beginnings of an interesting research topic. Roger Luckhurst’s new book, Zombies: A Cultural History, is a great introduction to the arc of the zombie from Caribbean folklore to pulp fiction in the 1920s to the present hordes overrunning TV and movie screens. Luckhurst’s sense of humor and the many pictures, posters, and stills from movies and television shows enliven this book about the living dead.
