Assembling the best international, interdisciplinary zombie scholarship, this collection considers what the walking undead reveal about our relationships to the world and to each other. Essays portray zombies not as a singular cultural figure but as representative of larger issues: the belief in an afterlife, fears of contagion and technology, the effect of capitalism and commodification, racial exclusion and oppression, dehumanization.
