From the Publisher

“The European strain represented in the Caribbean by contradance and quadrille is fascinating as part of a growing scholarly recognition of the fundamental importance of that art to many cultures. The focus on dance in addition to music is timely, and the  contributors—all very respected scholars-are authoritative, yet lucid. This is a very important book.”—Julian Gerstin, Keene State College
