The Serpent and the Rainbow

I read this book when I was a kid, in the mid-eighties. Using anthropology to find the source of the zombi myth that had been part of the culture in the Caribbean, the author actually discovered that there was a reality behind the stories, and in fact a scientific basis for turning someone you don't like into the walking dead, and I don't mean the grocery clerk at your neighborhood quiki-mart.
