520    There is something about a shapeshifter--a person who can 
       transform into an animal--that captures our imagination; 
       that causes us to want to howl at the moon, or flit 
       through the night like a bat. Werewolves, vampires, demons,
       and other weird creatures appeal to our animal nature, our
       "dark side," our desire to break free of the bonds of 
       society and proper behavior. Real or imaginary, 
       shapeshifters lurk deep in our psyches and remain 
       formidable cultural icons. The myths, magic, and meaning 
       surrounding shapeshifters are brought vividly to life in 
       John B. Kachuba's compelling and original cultural 
       history. Rituals in early cultures worldwide seemingly 
       allowed shamans, sorcerers, witches, and wizards to 
       transform at will into animals and back again. Today, 
       there are millions of people who believe that 
       shapeshifters walk among us and may even be world leaders.
       Featuring a fantastic and ghoulish array of examples from 
       history, literature, film, TV, and computer games, 
       Shapeshifters explores our secret desire to become 
       something other than human.
