“This book points the way for the next steps of further research ... [It] will be a seminal work in facilitating the analysis of understanding the roles of dance and body under fascism.” — H-Net Reviews
“... a bristling book ... Rarely have we been invited to read polemical history charged with both emotional intensity and — thankfully — voluminous documentation ... Reading along with rapt attention, I can’t decide which is more surprising: the blistering clarity and conviction of Kant’s claims and their documantation, or the fuzzy preoccupation with self that Hitler’s dancers seemed to embody during this period.” — Dance Critics Association Newsletter
