This book is very detailed and deals with the phenomenon of dog people (also called Kynocephali) in Europe and Asia, with the author limiting the topic to Europe, China and India.
His comments and conclusions make perfect sense, and the interested reader finds something in this book.
That the author is limited to the areas listed is unfortunate in my eyes, because the phenomenon of dog-headed people occurs globally. Nevertheless, you will learn a lot from the myths of China and India. You will learn about Christian legends that hardly anyone here knows, and some legends of the founding father of Hindu beliefs and legends.
However, the book is written very scientific and is probably more something for people from the area of faculty than for the average reader.
