"The Russian Fairy Tale" introduces readers to selected tales from the Russian/Slavic tradition and to methods of examining and critiquing them. The material examines fairy tales from their folk origins to their literary and filmic versions, and provides contextual ties to Western presentations of fairy tales such as the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, and Disney. The selected stories are grouped by specific methods of analyzing them including: Structural Approaches; Psychological Approaches; Feminist Approaches; and Socio-political Approaches. As they use the text students will be exposed to some of the great masters of Russian literature, such as Aleksandr Pushkin, Nikolai Gogol, and Leo Tolstoy. They will also be introduced to wonderful stories like "The Tale of the Golden Cockerel" and "The Tale of Ivan the Fool and His Two Brothers." "The Russian Fairy Tale" can be used in courses on Russian literature, fairy tales, folklore, and children's literature. Thomas J. Garza earned his Ed.D. at Harvard University.

Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories". It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through the Middle East and Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, can be altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.
