5.0 out of 5 stars A scholarly overview on Ancient Dances, Feb. 12 2001
By 
Robert (Buenos Aires, Capital Federal Argentina) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ancient Egyptian Dances (Paperback)
This nice book contains many interesting and thought-provoking studies on ancient Egyptian dances, being the only book (known to me) on the subject to deal with the same in a wide-range way. The authoress analyses not only relgious or "sacred" dance, but also those apparently belonging to more "profane" aims. She also proffer several hypothesis concerning the movements of certain dances, which is not usual in other treatises. A most welcomed title.
