Book review - Sattriya: The living dance tradition of Assam - Nita Vidyarthi

This ready reckoner of Sattriya, the classical dance of Assam, is the first English version on Sattriya dance published by the Publication Board, Assam. The author, being a Sattriya dancer, critic and a scholar herself, is at her best in describing the striking features of the dance form together with its major aspects and historical background in easy, lucid language. Altogether, twelve chapters concisely cover the essentials of Sattriya, complete with a short glossary of terms, an essentially long bibliography and photographs at the end of the book.
