"Exciting and fascinating, this reference work succeeds in its goal of bringing "joy as well as enlightenment" about all forms of dance in all countries of the world. An extremely useful synoptic outline of contents" with nine sections (including "Ritual and Religion" and "Popular Entertainment") enables the user to explore dance in its cultural and social aspects, while topical essays complement the 2,000-plus entries. Heavily illustrated with black-and-white photographs, the encyclopedia captures the fluid movement of dance; with its depth and scope, this outstanding work has carved a well-deserved niche".--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Titles", American Libraries, May 1999.

This collection of papers reflects varied aspects of the female condition. Each documents a perspective on that condition: "Woman as Artistic Innovator" comments on female choreographers; "City Women and Religious Change in Sixteenth-Century France" explores the impact of the Reformation on one particular group of women; "Women and the Jural Domain" outlines the traditional realms of female activity and suggests a reason for continued inactivity in the jural domain even today; "Women: The New Political Class" traces the politicizing of American Women in the 1960's; "Classical Mythology and the Role of Women in Modern Literature" explores the alternative roles available to women as they were depicted in mythology and as they persist today; "Feminist History in Perspective: Sociological Contributions to Biographic Analysis" discusses biases in the biographical treatment of feminists and proposes a new approach to biographical analysis; and "Educating Women for Leadership: a Program for the Future" urges a reform in higher education that would improve the self-concept of women and train them to be competent leaders in society. The collection concludes with biographies of the authors and an index. (Jh)

Ballet and modern dance by Susan Au( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether as performers or as spectators, more people enjoy dance today than ever before. Its extraordinary range extends from classical ballet and baroque court spectacles to avant-garde modern dance, tap, and ethnic dancing. Anyone with an interest in dance has felt the need for a guide to the art's rich history and complex present state. Susan Au's lucid text covers the entire spectrum of dance, vividly describing the great performers and performances of the past as well as exploring in detail the dance world of today. A generous selection of illustrations completes the picture, taking the reader from the palaces of the Medici to the lofts of Manhattan, from the dancing of Louis XIV to the experimental choreography of Twyla Tharp and Pina Bausch. A completely new final chapter documents the work of the chief dancers and choreographers from the 1980s to the present, covering offshoots of modern dance such as Tanztheater and Butoh, and recent developments such as performance art and site-specific choreography. The author discusses the upsurge in the popularity of dances of the past, among them ballroom dancing and the Argentine tango, and notes the revival of tap dancing as well as the successful adaptation of Irish stepdancing to the theater. In addition, she records the uses dance and dancers have made of recent technological advances, including cinedance and videodance, CD-ROMs, and the Internet."--Publisher's description
