Korte samenvatting
Cannibalism from Sacrifice to Survival:

Anthropophagy or cannibalism, defined as “the eating of human flesh by human beings,” has often called the last taboo. The very word “cannibalism” conjures up images of savages stewing missionaries in pots or shipwrecked sailors doomed to devour the bodies of their dead mates. However, the true picture is not extreme or that simple.

In Cannibalism: From Sacrifice to Survival, psychologist Hans Askenasy has put together the first comprehensive history of a subject combining violence, horror, and exotic customs. Hans Askenasy wrote his book in three parts. The first part of his book Is about the history and the geographic overview of Cannibalism, in his second part of his book he wrote about the motivational factors for cannibalism, including famines, survival in extreme situations, magic, ritual and madness. In the third part of this book Askenasy wrote about the fascination with cannibals, man-eating witches, werewolves, and vampires in myth, literature and media.
