Vampire characters are ubiquitous in popular culture, serving as metaphors for society's most sensitive subjects--sexuality, gender roles, race, ethnicity, class--and often channeling widespread fears of immigration, crime, terrorism and addiction. This book explores pop culture's vampires variously as sexual seducers, savage monsters, noble protectors and drainers of human power. The author discusses three real-life role models for vampire characters.
