Read full description of the books:



A disappointing contribution to dance scholarship. Though historically and factually compelling, Brown's "ethnography" (which uses no ethnographic methods or interlocutors) is overwhelmed by her own interpretations of the dances that impose her worldview on her subject. Her feminist anthropology doesn't seem to emerge organically from the women (and men) she studies, but rather to be affixed top-down onto the topic. Her prose is circuitous and often interrupted by strange sidebars (such as a quite insensitive recounting of when an old man at Carnival whom she "thought looked like Gandhi" touches her bottom). Quite a fascinating topic, but mired by academic improprieties!
