Poisonous Cat Theory: The Social Foundation of Collective Fear and Violence


Non-fiction | 

All Ages

Stories of poisonous cats are told in mountain villages on the eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau. But these cats are in fact women, who transform into animals to perform harmful witchcraft. Concerned also with contemporary realities, the author’s study of poisonous cats reminds us of the existence of universal forms of violence.
