The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural and social influences on children's lives. But until Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives - their behavior, values, and relationship to society.

But Jack Zipes is never one to fool around with subtle implications. He says that the fairy tale writers of Perrault's time "sought to civilize children to inhibit them, and perhaps pervert their natural growth," and he hints darkly about "where socialization through the reading of the Grimms' tales has led us"—as if those stories were responsible for the whole awful way the world is nowadays. Meanwhile, "What saves Andersen's tales from simply becoming sentimental homilies which many of them are was his extraordinary understanding of how class struggle affected the lives of people in his times," and "Baum sought to subvert the American socialization process based on competition and achievement"; as for "The Selfish Giant," "Obviously it is related to Wilde's homosexuality, and he depicted the love for the boy as a form of liberation.
