During the colonial period, Africans told each other terrifying rumours that Africans who worked for white colonists captured unwary residents and took their blood. In colonial Tanganyika, for example, Africans were said to be captured by these agents of colonialism and hung upside down, their throats cut so their blood drained into huge buckets. In Kampala, the police were said to abduct Africans and keep them in pits, where their blood was sucked. This text presents and interprets vampire stories from East and Central Africa as a way of understanding the world as the storytellers did. Using gossip and rumour as historical sources in their own right, it assesses the place of such evidence, oral and written, in historical reconstruction.

Frankie Silver was hanged for the murder of her husband. Later, people claimed that a tree growing near the cabin in which Charlie Silver had been buried was "accurst". This work uses the "accurst" tree metaphor for the grip the story of the murder has had on the imaginations of the community.

Of the various types of mythological literature, fairy tales are the simplest and purest expressions of the collective unconscious and thus offer the clearest understanding of the basic patterns of the human psyche. Every people or nation has its own way of experiencing this psychic reality, and so a study of the world's fairy tales yields a wealth of insights into the archetypal experiences of humankind. Perhaps for foremost authority on the psychological interpretation of fairy tales is Marie-Louise von Franz. In this book - originally published as An Introduction to the Interpretation of Fairy Tales - she describes the steps involved in analyzing tales and illustrates them with a variety of European tales, from "Beauty and the Beast" to "The Robber Bridegroom.".
