Studies in dance history


Trained as an anthropologist at the University of Chicago, Katherine Dunham combined her interest in dance and anthropology by linking the form and function of Caribbean dance and ritual to their African sources. This collection of Dunham's essays on dance and anthropology, press reviews, interviews and chapters from her unpublished memoir has been revised and expanded with recent scholarly articles.
