Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. In this book, Nick Harding sets out to describe a host of urban legends, suggesting that we should not dismiss them purely as nonsense, nor accept them as gospel truth. But by striving to understand their underlying meanings, we begin to see their true worth as folklore for the modern world. To understand folklore and therefore the realm of the urban legend is to understand the psyche of a nation, and we can gain insight into our own fears and those of our fellow human beings.
