MEDIA REVIEWS

'Those interested in the history and sexual politics of dance will find that this fascinating book, with its detailed index and illustrations, dialogues well with Peter Stoneley's A Queer History of the Ballet and Stavros Stavrou Karayanni's Dancing Fear and Desire.' - CHOICE

'The Male Dancer makes a very considerable contribution to performance history in a gendered context ... [and offers] fascinating insights.' - M/C Reviews

'Essential reading for the developing fields of dance studies and gender studies... Burt's 2007 revised edition represents a promising development from his original work... The Male Dancer still offers one of the most comprehensive studies of the masculinity of auteur dancers of the twentieth century... Burt's classic and now rejuvenated The Male Dancer still represents a valuable contribution to gender and sexuality studies and does not fail to inspire the continued scholarly attention that gender and sexuality still demand.' - Platform
