This is not a "how-to" book, but a look at the history of dance
around the world. In the back is an excellent little "Glossary of
Dance Terms" that will prove very useful to a beginning student.
The glossary is especially useful when discussing so many ethnic
styles (all, I might add, with the author's equal respect and
enthusiasm). From the Iroquois to the London society balls he
was interested only in how - and why - people were dancing.
