View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This revised core text addresses the rationale, process, techniques and methodologies specific to the study of dance history. A team of dance historians covers the study of dance in its traditional and performance contexts: Roger Copeland and Deborah Jowitt each take a controversial look at the modern American dance; Kenneth Archer and Millicent Hodson explain the processes they use when reconstructing "lost" ballets; and Theresa Buckland and Georgina Gore write about traditional dance in England and West Africa respectively. With other contributions on social dance, ballet, early European modern dance and feminist perspectives on dance history, the text offers a multitude of starting points for studying dance history.

"All the papers complement each other so well and manage to address the processes of dance history research in a such an effective way that the book will certainly be of benefit to researchers in traditional dance and indeed in almost any dance genre. In all, the collection is not only a self-contained starting point for any student of dance history but also will be of considerable use to dance researchers in a number of fields.."
