Stripping in Time: A History of Erotic Dancing
by Lucinda Jarrett
Lucinda Jarrett's immacularely researched book uncovers the rich history of an unacknowled art form, the art of stripping. Censorship has often driven the art from underground where it remains derided and hounded by a 'moral' majority.
Stripping in Time looks at the impact of censor ship on the dancers and their craft. Memoirs, diaries and eye witness accounts evoke the live of these women, who danced on the edges of 'civilized society'.
