Description

The main theme of this book is how difficult it is for the planned economies to develop multilateral trade relations and accomplish economic integration, given their autarkically oriented trade mechanisms. This chronic conflict is examined over the most decisive phases of development of the Eastern community, from Khrushchev's efforts to create an economic community of sovereign states, to Brezhnev's integration program, to Gorbachev's current efforts to drive forward integration of the Eastern community at whatever cost.

Table of Contents

This is an authoritative presentation and discussion of the most basic thematic elements universally found in folklore and literature. The reference provides a detailed analysis of the most common archetypes or motifs found in the folklore of selected communities around the world. Each entry is written by a noted authority in the field, and includes accompanying reference citations. Entries are keyed to the Motif-Index of Folk Literature by Stith Thompson and grouped according to that Index's scheme. The reference also includes an introductory essay on the concepts of archetypes and motifs and the scholarship associated with them. This is the only book in English on motifs and themes that is completely folklore oriented, deals with motif numbers, and is tied to the Thompson Motif-Index.
