Eskimo or Inuit

I'm designing a book of Eskimo folk tales for a university project, and I'm wondering if I should use the term Eskimo or Inuit. My understanding is that Inuit is the correct term in Canada and Greenland because all Canadian and Greenlandic Eskimos are Inuit, but Eskimo is preferred elsewhere because it encompasses both Inuit and Yupik people. I'm in the UK, so I guess Eskimo is correct, but I'm pretty sure all of the stories I'm using are Inuit so would it make more sense to use that term? [more inside]
