Editorial Reviews

Review

“The quebradita story is rich in issues of cultural differences across Mexican American and Mexican cultural subgroups based on nationality, region, generation, and gender. The closer look at cultural and social processes that Hutchinson offers draws us into the deeper vectors that come to bear on the creation and practice of the dance and the broader and subtle meanings that the dance expresses.” —Daniel E. Sheehy, Smithsonian Institution

Format: Paperback
Great book. It was definitely well written. Liked the ethnographic description of dance with lots of references to movement in its physical and metaphorical senses. The author's expertise a dancer made the book even more rich in description. The authenticity and illustration of the multiple layers and meanings of "insider" knowledge are appealing to students as is the the emphasis on kinetic/kinesthetic subjectivities.
