Editorial Reviews

?Wilmeth covers the circus, Wild West exhibition, dime museum, medicine and minstrel shows, vaudeville, burlesque, the musical review, and stage magic. His opening and closing chapters deal with less neatly defined topics: outdoor amusements (fairs, expositions, theme parks) and showboats and tent theaters. ... Each chapter begins with a historical summary, continues with a survey of sources including listings of major collections, societies, museums, etc., for each type of amusement, and concludes with a bibliography. ... This is a useful reference work for popular culture and performing arts collections.?-Choice
