Just as the title promises, this is an introduction to folklore and folklore studies -- and a very good one, at that. James does an admirable job of discussing the theory and practice of folklore study, while also providing insight into the historical roles that folklore played and the rationale behind its study, past and present. It's a brisk, entertaining overview that I found to be very approachable and engrossing as a layman. I'd strongly recommend this book for someone who is interested in folklore in the general sense but perhaps hasn't had much experience with folklore as a serious topic for study.
I'm not even a humanities major but I thoroughly enjoyed the author's clarity of writing and focus.
Took a while to get through but was definitely worth it.
