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.
