The Anthropology of Dance

By Royce, Anya Peterson

Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A.: Indiana Univ Pr, 1977. 238pp/illus. Inscribed by author on ffep. Dance makes its unique contribution to society and culture by virtue of its form and expression; at the same time it is intimately bound up with elements of religion, kinship and social organisation, politics and economics. The fact that dance is inseparable from its means of expression - the human body making patterns in time and space - means that it cannot be divorced from its social and cultural context. The author first explores the various meanings that dance has had over time for different peoples. Next she focuses on the place that dance has occupied in anthropological studies over the past one hundred years. Clean. Inscribed by the Author. 1st Edition. Cloth. Near Fine/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
