Originally published in 1994, Folk Law, a comprehensive two-volme collection of essays, examines the meeting place of folklore - the unwritten law of obligations and prohibitions that are understood and passed on - and jurisprudence. The contributors explore the historical significance and implications of folk law, its continuing influence around the globe, and the conflicts that arise when folk law diverges from official law.

Valuable for students and scholars of law, folklore, or anthropology, Renteln and Dundes's extensive casebook marks a rare interdisciplinary approach to two important areas of research.
