Udmurt Mythology and Folklore

Udmurt Mythology and Folklore cover

The book you have in your hands is not an ordinary book. It is the first wider approach to Udmurt folklore in English. Udmurt folkloristics has a relatively long history: taking into account the general pattern of cultural development it is more than one and a half centuries. Unhappily for international communication, it is overwhelmingly in Russian. This is the first systematic attempt to open up this rich material to the international scholarly community.

Editors for this issue are Mare Kõiva, Nikolai Anisimov and Eva Toulouze.
