Anderson discusses the increasingly bold approaches of choreographers and dancers after World War I, how the politically troubled thirties gave rise to social protest dance in America, and how the menace of fascism was reflected in the work of European practitioners. Following World War II many European nations turned to ballet, whereas American modern dance prospered under inventive new choreographers like Jose Limon, Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, and Alwin Nikolais. The book concludes with an authoritative view of how modern dance thrives once again on a worldwide basis

"I like his poetry because it takes me into another world, one where wit conquers the pain of inadequacy and the sur-beautiful covers up the dingy hopelessness of reality. The test of a poet, for me, is whether or not he can take you into his own world, his own creation, and fascinate you enough to stay there a while and savor the poems. i think Jack Anderson's poetry is a true record of an imagination."--Diane Wakoski
