Summary note
"This compilation of 31 essays from scholars throughout the globe examines the relationship between ethnicity as a signifier of identity and the dances associated with an ethnic designation. As such, it incorporates the critiques of previous designations of dance as folk, classical, etc. in favor of a more nuanced and complex view of ethnicity as at the intersection of race, gender, nation and life style"-- Provided by publisher.
