An introduction to the dance of India, China, Korea [and] Japan by Beate Gordon( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general aim of this booklet is to assist those who desire to increase their knowledge and appreciation of Asian cultures and, more specifically, to provide an additional dimension to the Asia Society's Dance Demonstration Program. Dance history, philosophical ideas of religion, accompanying rituals, the relationship of dance to music, and roles and styles of today are briefly described and traced for each of the countries of India, China, Korea, and Japan. The artistic interchange and transmission of dance-form from one culture to another in each country is emphasized. The last section compares Asian and Western dance, focussing on differences in attitudes and performances. (Sjm)
Last boat to Yokohama : the life and legacy of Beate Sirota Gordon by Nassrine Azimi( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1946, a remarkable woman secretly helped create Japan's new constitution, writing an article that mandated equal rights for all women in Japan. Few could imagine that Article 24 was the work of a 22-year-old Vienna-born, naturalized American woman of Ukrainian-Jewish descent who had gown up in Japan. Her name was Beate Sirota, and to this day she remains an idol for generations of Japanese women. This extraordinary biography includes a foreword by Beate, an in-depth look at her father, the world-renowned classical pianist Leo Sirota, personal diaries from the World War II era by her mother, Augustine, as well as a detailed overview of Beate's life, including the ongoing impact of her contributions to the Japanese constitution, as well as her personal impact on world culture fostered by four decades of dedication to introducing authentic dance, theater, and music of the Far East to American audiences"--Page 4 of cover

Le dernier bateau pour Yokohama : les Sirota, une odyssée politique et culturelle by Michel Wasserman( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre dit la tragédie et la grandeur du vingtième siècle. Il traite du passage de relais entre un père et sa fille, au plus haut niveau d'action artistique et politique. Échappant à la tourmente nazie, Leo Sirota, virtuose à l'égal des plus grands, forma au cours des années trente l'élite des pianistes japonais. Sa fille Beate, élevée au Japon dont elle possédait parfaitement la langue, rédigea à 22 ans auprès de MacArthur l'article décisif sur l'égalité des sexes dans la constitution pacifique élaborée par l'occupant. Rentrée aux États-Unis en 1947, elle se consacra pendant près d'un demi-siècle à sensibiliser le grand public américain aux traditions théâtrales de l'Asie. Elle nous a quittés le 30 décembre 2012, suscitant un hommage planétaire
