Cracking Jokes: Studies of Sick Humor Cycles & Stereotypes by Alan Dundes
Price: $9.99 USD. Words: 73,800. Language: English. Published: January 19, 2017 by Quid Pro Books. Categories: Nonfiction » Literary criticism » Humor, Nonfiction » Social Science » Anthropology / Cultural
Where there's anxiety, there will be jokes to express it. Jokes are legitimate folklore--like myth, legend, superstition and song; as such, they reflect what is on people's minds. There's been no shortage of jokes or anxiety, so in this book Dundes reminds us of the jokes we have been telling and reveals the anxiety these jokes reflect. His studies haven't always been popular. Adds a new Foreword.
