Summary
In the absence of vaccination--as was true up until the late nineteenth century--the rabies virus caused brain infections with a nearly 100 percent fatality rate, both in animals and in humans, and the suffering it inflicted became the stuff of legend. The cultural response was to create fictional embodiments of the anxieties wrought by fear of the disease--ravenous wolfmen, bloodsucking vampires, and armies of mindless zombies
