Editorial Reviews

Review


"By far the most ambitious reference work in the history of dance publishing... a monument of scholarship... an indispensable foundation for any serious dance library."--Toronto Star


"For size, scope, and quality of scholarship, there simply isn't anything comparable to theInternational Encyclopedia of Dance... A distinguished editorial board, headed by Selma Jeanne Cohen, and hundreds of experts in dance, anthropology, art, music, folklore, philosophy and other fields have produced a singular work. From Abraxas to the Zurich Ballet... Mark Morris to morris dancing... a remarkable variety of dances, dancers and dance topics are represented... There has never been a dance reference work with such a wide ranging outlook presented in such a carefully planned and executed format... indispensable."--RBB/Booklist


"Choreographers, balletomanes, dance historians, Fred Astaire fanatics--all will covet this encyclopedia for its handy assessment of great works and global dance styles... [a] dazzling debut performance."--Wall Street Journal


"[T]his set takes a place among the great subject encyclopedias as the first work to consult for authoritative information on a discipline."--Choice


"Provides unparalleled access to information on dance and dancers."--Library Journal Best Reference
