The Fairy Tale World is a definitive volume on this ever-evolving field. The book draws on recent critical attention, contesting romantic ideas about timeless tales of good and evil, and arguing that fairy tales are culturally astute narratives that reflect the historical and material circumstances of the societies in which they are produced. The Fairy Tale World takes a uniquely global perspective, seeking to broaden the international, cultural and critical scope of fairy tale studies, and to challenge Eurocentric assumptions about the discipline. The five sections cover:

The Formation of the Canon Africa and the Caribbean The Americas Asia and Australasia Europe

This volume brings together a selection of the most respected voices in the field, offering ground-breaking analysis of the fairy tale in relation to ethnicity, colonialism, feminism, disability, sexuality, the environment and class.
