    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    Prom has been a fixture in the life of American teenagers for as long as high schools have existed.

  • Dance With Meby Julia A. Ericksen

    NYU Press 2011; US$ 69.00

    Rumba music starts and a floor full of dancers alternate clinging to one another and turning away.

They slide their feet along the floor toes first, transferring their weight from leg to leg, and settling... more...

  • The Wicked Waltz and Other Scandalous Dancesby Mark Knowles

    The waltz, perhaps the most beloved social dance of the 19th and early 20th centuries, once provoked outrage from religious leaders and other self-appointed arbiters of social morality. Decrying the corrupting influence of social dancing, they failed to suppress the popularity of the waltz or other dance crazes of the period, including the Charleston,... more...

  • Temps culture et sociétéby Gilles Pronovost

    Presses de l''niversite du Quebec 1983; US$ 3.75

    Cet ouvrage tente de dire que les sciences du loisir, par-delà leur quête difficile d’objectivité, constituent, pour les sociétés industrielles, au même titre que la sociologie et l’anthropologie, par exemple, une nouvelle manière de se comprendre elles-mêmes. Lentement surgies des transformations majeures... more...
