Not bad for a text book. Really dense. Lots of information covered without being repetitive. I really enjoyed the tie-ins to the work that the Grimm brothers and Charles Perrault were doing; what are now fairy tales for children were the stuff of adult popular culture and social and moral lessons. Really enjoyable, especially for a textbook.

Popüler Kültür kavramının orta çağ sonrasında halk kültürü olarak doğduğunu ve Avrupa'da nasıl biçimlendiğini anlatan bir kitap. Annales Okulu'nun günümüzdeki temsilcilerinden biri olan Burke'un kitabı oldukça başarılı bir şekilde Türkçeye çevrilmiş durumda.
