WORLD BOOK OF MODERN BALLET

The story of the art from the time of Diaghileff's era-ending death in 1929. Most of the book is devoted to ballet in America after Balanchine came to the U. S., -- a barbarian field, -- just as Diaghileff had invaded Paris. The forming of companies, a critical survey of the ballet repertoire, closeups of important dancers and choreographers- are chronicled by Mr. Martin who concludes that the day of international ballet is over and that ballet as reflecting art is proceeding to have a home base in our culture.
