Lada-Richards (classics, King's College London, UK) presents a study of pantomime dance between the end of the first century BC and the end of the sixth century AD and how it was an important part of imperial society. She specifically considers Lucian's dialogue De Saltatione (On the Dance). She also discusses pantomime's connections to other entertainments, how it was viewed by the cultural elite and used to make political statements, its components, its detractors, and issues of gender and eroticism. Some of the chapters are based on the author's previously published article from the journal Helios. The series is aimed at readers that may or may not have knowledge of Greek and Latin or the civilization of the ancient world, including scholars and students.
