One Ring to Bind Them All: Tolkien's Mythology is a study of the folkloristic and mythic structure of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, applying the theories of scholars Joseph Campbell, Vladimir Propp, amd Claude Lévi-Strauss. The book was based on Anne C. Petty's Ph.D. thesis: The Creative Mythology of J.R.R. Tolkien: A Study of the Mythic Impulse (Florida State University, 1972; iii, 144 leaves).
In 2002, a revised edition was published, including a new introduction (pp. [xi]-xxi) and an updated bibliography (pp. -121).
