Samba: Resistance in Moti. has been added to your Cart. A very disappointing book

Samba: Resistance in Moti. A very disappointing book. While factually dense, Browning's critical approach relies on a quite reductive view of dance as text - while Browning pays lip service to deconstructing the textual fetish of dance scholarship, she continues to seek to "read" dance not as performance but as text in motion. While purporting to be an ethnography, Brown quotes almost no actual individuals whom she interacted with (no exaggeration: I remember only two interlocutors being cited).

It was the 1996 recipient of the de la Torre Bueno Prize for an outstanding publication in the field of dance scholarship. Readers of Browning's academic writing have noted that in addition to representing "a pioneering effort in bringing discussions about the popular culture of Brazil into the North American academy," it evidences "the imagination of a novelist. By the same token, her novels take up such apparently academic concerns as the work of anthropologists Claude Lévi-Strauss.

A very disappointing book. While factually dense, Browning's critical approach relies on a quite reductive view of dance as text - while Browning pays lip service to deconstructing the textual fetish of dance scholarship, she continues to seek to "read" dance not as performance but as text in motion. While purporting to be an ethnography, Brown quotes almost no actual individuals whom she interacted with (no exaggeration: I remember only two interlocutors being cited). The quality of her prose is quite poor, and her argumentation is often interrupted by strange and unwarranted sidebars (such as a rather insensitive story about a Brazilian man whom she thought "looked like Gandhi" touching her bottom while at a Carnival festivity). Also, only half the book is about samba (the other half covers candomble and capoeira), which is not well-advertised.

This is a fascinating look at movement in Brazil and the relationships between different types and styles of movement. This is a good place to start an exploration of this subject. It is a subjective account, although the historical information seems to be adequately researched. The value is more in the vivid snapshot the author creates of a period in the development of music and movement in the country, rather than as a comprehensive historical depiction. The author sometimes moves back and forth in ways that may seem unrelated until later in the book, so readers should be patient.
