CHOICE ReviewBendix (Georg-August-Univ., Gottingen, Germany) and Hasan-Rokem (Hebrew Univ. of Jerusalem), two of the greatest living folklorists, have brought together scholars from all over the world to produce a state-of-the art volume that will stand not only as a monument to a moment in time, but as also a guidepost for a generation. They have divided the book in four parts: "Concepts and Phenomena," "Location," "Reflection," and "Practice," each with an introduction by the editors. The conceptual essays might be the most difficult for introductory readers, but these are well handled by their authors. The "Location" essays focus on the state of folklore scholarship in particular nations. By "Reflection," the editors mean how folklore is reflected in other subjects such as literature or law. The "Practice" section deals with the growing phenomena of applied folklore. Some examples of standout essays in each part include Dorothy Noyes on the social base of folklore, Arzu Ozturkmen on Turkey, Stephen Winick on music, and Debora Kodish on public folklore. Nearly all college and university libraries will want this book. Summing Up: Essential. All academic levels/libraries. D. S. Azzolina University of Pennsylvania
