|Author: Graff, Ellen|
Title: Stepping Left: Dance and Politics in New York City, 1928-1942.
Publisher: Durham: Duke University Press, 1997.
Notes: Graff grasps the shift in thinking of revolutionary dancers caused by the Great Depression and the New Deal, the latter of which employed many in the Federal Dance Project. Unlike most histories, Graff treats dancers as workers who had concerns similar to those of their industrial counterparts and traces the actions which gave dancers the reputation as the most militant group in the Works Progress Administration's jurisdiction.
