The Fascist Turn in the Dance of Serge Lifar is the first book not only to discuss the resistance to Lifar in the French press at the start of his much-mythologized career, but also the first to present substantial evidence of Lifar's collaborationism and relate it to his artistic profile during the preceding decade.

Mark Franko is Laura H. Carnell Professor of Dance at Boyer College of Music and Dance, Temple University. His most recent books are Choreograping Discourses: A Mark Franko Reader (2018), and (editor) The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Reenactment (2017). He was editor of Dance Research Journal and he is founding editor of the Oxford Studies in Dance Theory book series. Franko received a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship in 2018-19 to complete this book.
Franko's new book is both provocative and brilliantly researched, offering a re-thinking of Lifar's life and work while re-shaping received perceptions of French modernism and conventional accounts of what constitutes 'neoclassicism' in dance. The book is ambitious and ground-breaking and situates dance theory and dance history in direct relation to the exigencies of political power. * Susan Jones, University of Oxford * Serge Lifar, star dancer and director of the Paris Opera, notoriously thrived under the German occupation of France during 1940-1944. Mark Franko examines this matter authoritatively and evaluates Lifar'scontribution to the evolution of ballet in modern France. * Robert O. Paxton, Columbia University *
