Robin Hood: People's Outlaw and Forest Hero
by Paul Buhle Author, Gary Dumm Author, Chris Hutchinson Author and Sharon Rudahl Author
This book delves deep into the origin of the legend of Robin Hood, tracing how its history led to modern representation in movies, films, songs, and television shows. Buhle shows that our moment in history--marked by a rich and powerful class exploiting the vulnerable, from the subjugation of individuals in lower social classes to the ravaging of our world's natural resources--is one that demands a new Robin Hood Era. Through blending text, collage, and comic art, this book illustrates why the concept of a hero who steals from the rich and gives to the poor has been and continues to be so compelling.
