Speaking with Vampires : rumor and History in Colonial Africa

White, Luise
Berkeley:  University of California Press, 2000

"During the colonial period, Africans told each other terrifying rumors that Africans who worked for white colonists captured unwary residents and took their blood. In addition to presenting stories that Africans told to describe colonial power, the book presents an epistemological inquiry into the nature of historical truth and memory, and into their relationship to the writing of history."Publisher's Description
