The Borzoi Book of Modern Dance
356 p. : ill. (b&w) ; 16.5 x 24.5 cm.
"What is 'modern dance,' how does it differ from ballet and other forms of theatrical dancing -- and who made it what it is? These questions and their answers are the subjects around which Margaret Lloyd, admired dance critic of the Christian Science Monitor, has written a unique and endlessly entertaining book. It begins with Isadora Duncan and Mary Wigman, and then deals with Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and half a hundred other leaders (and followers) in this variegated field." -- from the book jacket
