MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jamake Highwater has emerged as...a successor to Joseph Campbell, exploring and celebrating the function of myth and ritual as being no less important in modern art and life than in indigenous cultures."--San Francisco Chronicle
"Whether he's writing about pop music, modern dance, or American Indians, Jamake Highwater is a superb writer."--San Francisco Review of Books
"Absolutely fascinating!"--Cleveland Press
"Vastly informative....Stimulating....He manages to put and amazingly sensible history of dance in an extraordinarily few pages....Highwater's gifts are...impressive."--Dance Magazine
"Highwater rescues the art from the discussions of aesthetic niceties in which it is so often enclosed to make us see the real world where human values propel or thwart its ritualizing drive."--The Washington Post
"It never loses its magic or the compelling quality of Highwater's voice....Seduces the reader into believing one can almost pin down the elusive magic of movement with the alchemy of words."--Dance Pages/Library Research Associates
"This is a most interesting attempt to analyze dance from a fresh viewpoint, to tear away the superstructure built by years of Western dance conventions and get down to basics. Some may find the idea controversial, but clearly Highwater has important things to say and says them well."--Publishers
Weekly
