Samba: Resistance in Motion

Front Cover
Indiana University Press, Nov 22, 1995 - Performing Arts - 192 pages

While she brings ethnographic, historiographic, and musicological scholarship to bear on her subject, Browning writes as a dancer, fully engaged in the dance cultures of Brazil and of Brazilian exile communities in the U.S.
