About the Author:

Mike Dixon-Kennedy is a professional writer.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up-An accessible overview of the people, places, stories, and events featured in this body of literature. The more than 900 alphabetically arranged entries range in length from a paragraph to several pages. Dixon-Kennedy emphasizes legend and myth over folk and fairy tales. As a result, the witch Baba-Yaga has a sizable entry, but a collector of folklore such as Aleksandr Afanasev is not included. The writing is clear and the author's expertise is obvious. A map of Eastern Europe and Asia appears at the beginning of the book and average-quality black-and-white photographs and reproductions are scattered throughout. A useful "Topic Finder" that groups the articles into broad categories and a good index conclude the volume. Libraries that boast strong folklore collections will find this encyclopedia valuable.

Book Description ABC-CLIO. No binding. Condition: New. 392 pages. Dimensions: 10.1in. x 7.1in. x 1.4in.There are few stories more stirring than those of ancient Russia. Russian and other Slavic beliefs weave a rich tapestry in which real-world elements coexist with those from fantasy, such as dragons, monsters, and shape-changing wolves. Though Russia adopted Christianity as the state religion in A. D. 988, paganism remained popular through the end of the 19th century and survives in isolated pockets even today. In Russian myth and legend, Christian themes are interwoven with pagan ideas: dragons fight priests, saints encounter nymphs, and witches enter the kingdom of heaven. Encyclopedia of Russian and Slavic Myth and Legend includes extensive historical, geographical, and biographical background to deepen the readers understanding of the myth and legend. Numerous illustrations are included in this fascinating volume, which will be of great interest to students, scholars, and everyone who wishes to explore the cultural heritage of ancient Russia. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Library Binding. Seller Inventory # 9781576070635
