Vlad the Impaler: Son of the Devil, Hero of the People not only brings to life one of history''s most compelling and brutal characters, but traces his bizarre afterlife. A hero to his countrymen, Vlad Dracula became a byword for dread. Not just for generations of Western fans of Gothic fiction and film, but also for his fifteenth-century contemporaries, whose appalled fascination made accounts of Dracula''s atrocities into the world''s first horror bestsellers. Combining historical research and dramatic reconstruction, with groundbreaking contemporary reference, Vlad the Impaler includes his dramatic career, from pampered captive of the Ottoman Sultans, to exterminating angel of Christian vengeance. See the Impaler as fascist idol and communist icon--was he the model ruler of an embattled realm or the embodiment of unbridled cruelty?
