This mainstream book will feature a collection of stories, both

desire to eat human flesh and how various cultures interpret this
behavior.

Is cannibalism as universally condemned as is commonly assumed?

At what point does it become acceptable? In what contexts is
cannibalism a regular part of societies, past and present?
