eBook: Folklore

The second edition of Folklore: An Encyclopedia of Beliefs, Customs, Tales, Music and Art (ABC-Clio, 2011), edited by Charlie McCormick and Kim Kennedy White, is one of the new encyclopedias found in our EBSCO eBooks collection. Made up of substantial entries in alphabetic order, the encyclopedia delivers a sociological focus on its contents.

Among the many concepts addressed are ballad, bard, carnival, joke, riddle, proverb. Broader concepts--such as aging, childbirth, and gender--are also included. Each entry includes cross-references to related topics.

The first edition was published in 1997; this new edition expands the content devoted to cyberculture and the internet and adds such new areas as martial arts and environmentalism.
