This is a very accessible yet profoundly scholarly work which locates so-called fairy tales within their cultural and social contexts, precisely as the title indicates. Illuminating, thought-provoking and generative of reflective insights for those working within various disciplines as well as for the general reader, I recommend this fine work without reservation!

An excellent and informative book for anyone that has an academic or passing interest in fairy tales - Zipes makes the subject accessible and fascinating. Recommended for anyone studying Children's Literature and Fairy Tales - an informative read.

A very useful and interesting book and an enjoyable read, but also valuable as a reliable source for anyone researching this folk tale and its history. From a master in the research and description of folk tales.

Very accessible discussion of fairytale and how fairy tales have become a genre of writing worthy of scholarly discussion. The book considers the range of contributions from scholars and amateurs and how this has shaped our understanding of fairytale.
