Synopsis: From two-headed men and dwarfs to Siamese twins, the phenomenon of the freak has fascinated people for centuries. In this classic study of the very nature of that fascination, the renowned literary and cultural critic Fiedler offers an in-depth examination of man's views of the freak from classical times to present. 150 photos and line drawings.

From Library Journal: "Witty, erudite, outrageously imaginative, Freaks is a sober historical survey of social responses to physical abnormality," said LJ 's reviewer of this 1978 title. Fiedler traces the history of the freak from ancient art and folklore to more modern times. Though "its morbidity may shock, its lively intelligence cannot fail to stimulate any serious reader" ( LJ 3/15/78).
