About the Author

John Charles Chasteen is professor of history at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.


"Chasteen has found the genome of today's salsa, tango, samba, and rumba, and his Nobel for world dance research is sure to follow."
"Chasteen makes a valuable contribution to the dearth of literature on dance and helps elevate the status of dance studies in academia by prioritizing its social and cultural significance."
"The author's lucid prose and the inherent attractions of the subject make this book ideal for use in undergraduate courses. The solid research and careful interpretation will engage a more advanced scholarly audience as well.
"Throughout "National Rhythms, African Roots" Chasten not only offers historical description, he paints vivid pictures of what the bar, social hall or undergound room looked like. . . an engaging history book."
