Jokes and Targets takes up an appealing and entertaining topic - the social and historical origins of jokes about familiar targets such as rustics, Jewish spouses, used car salesmen, and dumb blondes. Christie Davies explains why political jokes flourished in the Soviet Union, why Europeans tell jokes about American lawyers but not about their own lawyers, and why sex jokes often refer to France rather than to other countries. One of the world's leading experts on the study of humour, Davies provides a wide-ranging and detailed study of the jokes that make up an important part of everyday conversation.
