A Must-Buy! April 18 2000
By Mads Clausen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Greg Dening's Performances is a magical book, wide in scope, lucidly written and boldly imagined. Dening's writing is simply a joy to behold, and the central tenets of this work are refreshingly innovative. Although Dening's scholarship and the work in question both concentrate on Pacific history, this book remains crucial to anyone interested in the workings of historiography and the construction of (national) identities. The best recommendation of Dening's work might thus be its capacity to open new perspectives on areas quite unrelated to his field of work.
