Judy Van Zile’s Perspectives on Korean Dance is the latest of three volumes deal- ing with Korean dance published in recent years. There is a dry historical overview of dance in Korean Performing Arts (Korean International Theatre Institute, 1997), with little analysis of the dance forms mentioned, and few photographs to support a text filled with typographical errors. Korean Cultural Heritage III: Performing Arts (Korea Foundation, 1997) is a book to grace a cof- fee table after reading, with striking pictorial images of the broad variety of Korean dance, including modern dance, supported by dance criticism and analysis by some of Korea’s leading dance historians and critics. Perspectives on Korean Dance surpasses the other volumes in range and depth. Van Zile notes in her introduction that she “set out to present a series of diverse perspectives” of Korean dance (p. xvii) and the text places dances in contexts ranging from the impact of Chinese culture in Korea to cultural colonialism to immigrant transitions.
