From Library Journal:

Users will marvel at how much information is packed into this relatively small volume. The book's scope is Western ballet and modern dance; ethnic and social dance are excluded. Imaginatively and thoughtfully organized, the volume consists of 200 main entries--choreographers, dancers, ballets--grouped into eight broad chronological sections. The entries include factual data, a critical evaluation of the subject, lineage or links to related subjects, and a bibliography of books, films, and videos. Bold type within an entry guides users to related subjects. The book is not comprehensive but includes a surprisingly broad range of information--from Marie Salle to Maguy Marin. The concluding section, "Dance Information," is a selective list of periodicals, companies, and festivals throughout the world. Unique, useful, and recommended for reference and circulating collections. The book is one of a new series that also includes The Film Handbook , The Jazz Handbook, The Opera Hand book ; see reviews in this Reference section . --Ed.
