Caribbean And Atlantic Diaspora Dance: Igniting Citizenship
Caribbean and Atlantic Diaspora Dance: Igniting Citizenship
A vital resource for historical and contemporary Caribbean dance practices
"A masterful synthesis that connects the dots between the varied places, genres, and performers throughout the stunningly diverse cultures of the Caribbean. Daniel impressively draws on local experts as well as scholars from across the region, which leads to a strong, in-depth analysis of dances such as "quadrille" and "rumba.""--Halbert Barton, professor of anthropology, Long Island University
