About this Item

Introduction by Jean Laude. New York: Pantheon Books (1978). Quarto, cloth, in a dust wrapper. 241 pages, profusely illustrated. A fine copy of the First American Edition. ".There are hundreds (261 to be exact) of photographs of dances and ceremonies, many of which were never photographed before: war dances, funeral dances, ceremonies linked to harvesting and planting, initiation rites, and the everyday expressions of pleasure and joy that are so central to all African cultures. Huet shows us the traditional forms that have survived throughout the centuries, as well as what in many cases are the last examples of a life soon to be overwhelmed by modernization." (the Publisher). Bookseller Inventory # 8136
