9780415524483: Zombies (Shortcuts)

Not so long ago zombies rarely shuffled out of B-grade horror movies and cult comic books, but today they are everywhere. Zombies are proliferating, demonstrating an extraordinary capacity to transport fluidly from genre to genre, from the apocalyptic future to the already survived past, and in and out of fictional form.

Today they can be found in just about any genre or discourse and as they move sinuously across the cultural landscape they keep morphing; taking on ever new and ever more bizarre associations. Zombies would appear to be unthinkable, the ultimate nightmare of a world devoured by the dead, and yet more and more often this horror-scape provides a form of figurative capture for the way things are. This book explores why.

Zombies explores the recent transformation of zombie from cult genre to a figure that pervades western culture. Rutherford examines the zombie as a powerful metaphor for a constellation of social forces that define contemporary reality. This is an ideal introduction to all that is social about zombies, for students and general readers alike.

Extracts from Zombies, were recently published in Australian newspapers, The Age, The Canberra Times and the Sydney Morning Herald. Available now to read online: www.theage.com.au/entertainment/books/dead-right-20130620-2olqr.html

Review:

“A significant contribution to the field of zombie studies... The book is remarkable for the way the author brings together a wide range of contemporary philosophical thought about the zombie... Recommended.”
–  J M  Pulliam, Louisiana State University, Choice Magazine

"Jennifer Rutherford's fine book is an excellent introduction to zombies for those who wish to go beyond mere enjoyment of modern zombie narratives towards a deeper understanding of the mermeneutic implications of the genre."― Max Sipowicz, Australian Book Review
