Perkowski (Slavic languages and literatures, U. of Virginia) found that Slavic folk belief in vampires came to the New World with Kashubian emigrés to Ontario, Canada. The anthology contains this bicultural Slav's collected oral histories and writings on this Slavic mythology since the 1970s, e.g., The Darkling: A Treatise on Slavic Vampirism (1989), and translations of others' works on this tradition. The book concludes with charted analyses of Bram Stoker's Dracula and the linguistic conflation of assorted demons. Illustrations include an East European map of traditional religions, and b&w photographs of churches and cemeteries. Some references are not translated into English. The book lacks an index.

WOW! I never knew such a book existed. Although this book is expensive ($40), it is definitely worth every penny. The problem seems to be that all the best books are definitely the most expensive. This book is heavy, entertaining reading, and useful to Vampire scholars and folklorists.
