Recommends it for: Everyone interested in Folklore
Despite the fact that it is now 40 years old, this book is still probably the single best introduction to the history, theory and methodology of folklore. Its age makes it out-dated in terms of recent developments (especially the 1971 perforative and 1980's linguitsic shifts) but it is still a great intodutory text.
