    1. While this book probably has significant value for scholars, it doesn't offer much for the casual reader; or rather, you have to dig through many poorly-edited, obtuse, meandering passages to find the gems (and there are a few gems to be found). While I definitely learned some interesting tidbits about the Robin mythology and the graphic inserts were a good idea, overall the book felt dry and poorly-structured. Also, the last-minute inclusion of Afro-Caribbean "Robin-figures" really deserved its [...]

    2. “BANKS GOT BAILED OUT! WE GOT SOLD OUT!” On a crisp September Saturday afternoon in lower Manhattan, hundreds of protesters, including this reviewer, gathered together and converged onto the Financial District in order to march through Wall Street. But, as expected, the NYPD had blocked off Wall Street, even the infamous Charging Bull, and so the amorphous crowd finally made their way and assembled in an otherwise nondescript slither of a park. Unknowingly, what was previously Zuccotti Park [...]

    3. Implausible Connection Between Robin Hood Mythology and Marxist IdeologyI was hoping for a pleasant analysis of the Robin Hood myth, but was sorely disappointed. From the very start, the author tried to make non-existent connections between Robin Hood Mythology and Marxist Ideology and Radicalism. To claim that the Robin Hood legend still hold sway today because it speaks to our inner need for societal, religious, intellectual, economic, and social revolution in Western society is deplorable. Mr [...]

    4. 2.5 starsAlternated between being very informative and very uninformative and confusing. Doesn't really give much of a general introduction of Robin Hood before delving into history and comparisons of (for example) William Morris's works. A lot of the chapters left me scratching my head and wishing for more, like exactly what connection is there between Robin Hood and Mayday celebrations? I would have appreciated a lot more of a general type of book, covering the social rebellions that led to th [...]

    5. This is a great little book (just over 100 pages) that looks at the meaning of RH and his/the legends relevancy. And the cover artwork - brilliant.That was my impression back in Feb 2012 but having just re-read it I no longer think it is great. It's an uplifting book and the cover is evocative of the Occupy/RH Tax movements. But no matter how much I sympathize with that version of RH, Buhle's book is disappointing in that there is too much waffle. More importantly, I hesitate to use the 'P' word [...]

    6. A well researched and thoughful book, but it could have used a good editor. The author rambled a bit and assumed the reader knew things that I did not.

    7. This was a confused ramble of a collection, hitting on interesting points without enough foundation to truly make them stick.
