1 Review
Is cannibalism the oldest taboo in the world? By no means. Man has been eating his fellow man for over half a million years, and only in the last two thousand has the practice ceased to be respectable. The author, after many encounters (in the literary sense) with cannibalism while researching, has written the first book in English to cover every aspect of the subject.
