Summary

The academic study of folklore is a worldwide, interdisciplinary field spanning the humanities and the social sciences. It is very much tied to nationalism and national identity and for this reason it has often been the smaller countries that have led the way in terms of providing theory and method. This unique set gives students and researchers access to the most comprehensive collection of scholarship covering the principal theoretical and methodological concepts in the field. Featuring work published by a worldwide array of renowned scholars, there can be found here many seminal articles written by European folklorists, including materials that have been previously unavailable to numerous students of folklore, and key papers from hard-to-find periodicals. The set includes a new introduction by the editor and a comprehensive index.
