This book is a treasure – a collection of significant and insightful works by an outstanding scholar in our international community of practitioner-researchers in dance and arts education. Recognized with both the American National Dance Education Organization’s (NDEO) Lifetime Achievement Award and the Congress On Research in Dance’s (CORD) Award for Outstanding Scholarly Contribution to Dance Research, Sue Stinson is known to many of us through her articles, her work in these organizations and Dance and the Child International (DaCi), and as a leader in the University of North Carolina Greensboro Department of Dance. I recommend this book as essential reading for critical dance researchers engaged in ‘western’ higher education and as an appropriate textbook for graduate students in dance pedagogy and curriculum.
