Book Reviews significance as a public forum for criticizing the status quo via political skits. chapter 3 shows how the mumming tradition, in this respect, gives bulgarians a collective voice for articulating local problems, for enacting heightened racism, and for providing public entertainment. ultimately, gerald W. creed's Masquerade and Postsocialism is a masterful analysis of key social themes as gender and sexuality, civil society and democracy, community and ethnicity. The book provides a vivid analysis of a ritual performance as a source of meaningful knowledge about people's lives. Lift Every Voice: The History of African American Music. by burton W. peretti.
