Appalachian Dance - Creativity and Continuity in Six Communities
by Susan Eike Spalding
How clogging and flatfooting evolved into vital parts of Appalachia's dance culture. In a lively writing style Spalding analyzes industrialization around coal, race relations, and the 1970s folk revival, placing each community in its sociopolitical and economic context. African Americans, Native Americans as well as European immigrants added to local dance vocabulary. She shows how dance reflects the beliefs, shared understandings, and experiences of the community at large. 304 pp.
