Abstract

Book Reviews 163 I believe this chapter is the text at its most intriguing as it asks the reader to consider the question, where/when does the ambiguity of the performance as dancer or ethnographer move from the extraordinary to the ordinary as dancer/ethnographer moves from confusion to what Pierre Bourdieu would identify as “habitus”? Sensational Knowledge is ultimately an important contribution to dance studies and Asian performance as it provides detailed body-to-body account of the transmission of Japanese dance within the Tachibana School. Beyond this, it points toward important questions concerning the intersection between a dancer, an ethnographer, and the fi eld that have become central not only to previously mentioned authors Novack, Sklar, and Savigliano, but to the fi eld of ethnography in general. Barbara Sellers-Young University of California–Davis SHAKESPEARE IN CHINA. By Murray J. Levith. New York: Continuum, 2004. xiv + 156 pp. Cloth $39.95. Murray Levith, Shakespearean scholar and author of Shakespeare’s Italian Set- tings and Plays, What’s in Shakespeare’s Names, and Renaissance and Modern, takes on a signifi cant challenge in his new book Shakespeare in China, in which he broadly traces the history of Shakespeare in the country from fi rst transla- tions in
