This revised, expanded, and updated edition of the 1979 landmark Breaking the Magic Spell examines the enduring power of fairy tales and the ways they invade our subjective world. In seven provocative essays, Zipes discusses the importance of investigating oral folk tales in their socio-political context and traces their evolution into literary fairy tales, a metamorphosis that often diminished the ideology of the original narrative. Zipes also looks at how folk tales influence our popular beliefs and the ways they have been exploited by a corporate media network intent on regulating the mystical elements of the stories. He examines a range of authors, including the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, Ernst Bloch, Tolkien, Bettelheim, and J.K. Rowling to demonstrate the continuing symbiotic relationship between folklore and literature.

...the best and most realistic depiction of the modern world of pornography written in book form to date...' says Adult Video News publisher Paul Fishbein. The film Boogie Nights, the portrayal of the 1970's pornography business, hinted at an approaching revolution in the business. David Jennings, a UCLA Film and Television Department graduate, entered the industry as a 'shooter', to research and write a book about his experiences. He began at the time the x-rated video revolution erupted. That revolution transformed the audience from 'raincoats' in sleazy movie houses to mainstream Americans who accepted and enjoyed quality films in their living rooms and bedrooms. Jennings founded the first company to shoot adult films DIRECTLY onto videotape. This daring, tell-all insider story exposes all the secrets. Social, historical and political factors play a huge role in the machinations of the arcane trade. The threats to the industry from within and without include: the U.S. Government sponsored 'War on Porn and its excesses', underaged actresses and 'porno stage mothers', anti-smut crusaders and porn-addicted vice cops. Twelve years as a writer, researcher, director, producer, distributor, and manufacturer of adult videos qualify the author to completely answer the questions most often asked by friend and foe of erotic media alike: What are these porno stars really like? What kind of person can make such a public display of something that is so private? What is really happening behind the scenes? (The camera often lies.) Skinflicks is a book about pornography, not a pornographic book. The author's writing and research skills are of such high quality that they give a significant range and scope to the material. To honestly depict what goes on, part of the content is necessarily graphic. ALL OF IT IS TRUE. Illustrated with over 3 dozen photographs. www.skinflicksbook.com
