Write The First Customer Review

""Cannibals" is a magisterial, wide-ranging, and wonderfully readable exploration of one of the great Western obsessions. With a blend of horror, astonishment, and half-suppressed admiration, European travelers, philosophers, theologians, missionaries, and artists have argued for centuries about the significance of cannibalism. Lestringant's extraordinary erudition enables him to map an immensely complex territory. His book is a feast!"--Stephen Greenblatt
