Review

“The quebradita story is rich in issuesof cultural differences across MexicanAmerican and Mexican culturalsubgroups based on nationality, region,generation, and gender. The closerlook at cultural and social processesthat Hutchinson offers draws us into thedeeper vectors that come to bear onthe creation and practice of the danceand the broader and subtle meaningsthat the dance expresses.”—Daniel E. Sheehy, SmithsonianInstitution

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.
