Lust (theater production and French, Dominican College) offers a reference for scholars of theater, dance, movement, and mime, and a resource for theater critics. This is a paper edition reprint of a 2000 book in which the author revisits her doctoral dissertation on the meaning and history of mime and pantomime (1950, University of Paris). She adds depth to the material by drawing on her study of mime styles in Europe and North America in the intervening 50 years. Appended are lists of schools and centers for movement training, resources of all types, and a filmography; the bibliography is extensive. A section of b&w photos enhances the text; Marcel Marceau provides the foreword. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Beginning with a fascinating history of mime and pantomime from antiquity down to our day, Annette Lust carefully documents how different writers, critics, and mimes distinguish these two different arts in varying and contrasting ways. Her work responds to the call of mime and movement theatre organizations in Europe and in America to establish archives and information services for new findings in the art of mime, more documented research, and descriptions of new styles of mime art. (Atme)
Fascinating for both the lay person as well as the scholar...Dr. Lust's work is so detailed and comprehensive that I cannot list all of the outstanding women artists and their contributions that the author cites. I strongly recommend this book... (Women's Voices)
Lust documents for both the mime theatergoer and for the serious student the critical turning points in the evolution of mime in a highly understandable way that makes her book an ideal companion to all who are interested in learning about this entertaining art form. (The Commuter Times)
