Although the topics author N. O. Slak chooses to write about contain humor, satire, and true personal stories, The American Nutcracker is intended for those who share his opinions, yet are hesitant to convey their message for fear of being politically incorrect. Differences of opinion are encouraged in the United States and are even considered healthy by some. Slak offers his interesting viewpoint on everything from the workplace and grocery shopping to celebrities and award shows. Here are some examples: Self-proclaimed environmentalists tend to do a lot of whining, but there's not much going on as far as action. Actors, like studio executives, come and go. But why do they continue to soak up-and even beg for-those gratuitous fifteen minutes of fame? You think the State of the Union Address is long and boring? Think again. Only at award shows can you hear the most long-winded, revolting, and obnoxious speeches. Slak is in no way bashful in his self-elected job of speaking for the silent majority. If you can't handle the truth, coupled with a little sarcasm and satire, then go ahead and put The American Nutcracker down and slowly back away.

The Nutcracker is the most popular ballet in the world, adopted and adapted by hundreds of communities across the United States and Canada every Christmas season. In this entertainingly informative book, Jennifer Fisher offers new insights into the Nutcracker phenomenon, examining it as a dance scholar and critic, a former participant, an observer of popular culture, and an interviewer of those who dance, present, and watch the beloved ballet. Fisher traces The Nutcracker’s history from its St. Petersburg premiere in 1892 through its emigration to North America in the mid-twentieth century to the many productions of recent years. She notes that after it was choreographed by another Russian immigrant to the New World, George Balanchine, the ballet began to thrive and variegate: Hawaiians added hula, Canadians added hockey, Mark Morris set it in the swinging sixties, and Donald Byrd placed it in Harlem. The dance world underestimates The Nutcracker at its peril, Fisher suggests, because the ballet is one of its most powerfully resonant traditions. After starting life as a Russian ballet based on a German tale about a little girl’s imagination, The Nutcracker has become a way for Americans to tell a story about their communal values and themselves.

In distinction to many extant histories of ballet, The Oxford Handbook of Contemporary Ballet prioritizes connections between ballet communities as it interweaves chapters by scholars, critics, choreographers, and working professional dancers. The book looks at the many ways ballet functions as a global practice in the 21st century, providing new perspectives on ballet's past, present, and future. As an effort to dismantle the linearity of academic canons, the fifty-three chapters within provide multiple entry points for readers to engage in balletic discourse. With an emphasis on composition and process alongside dances created, and the assertion that contemporary ballet is a definitive era, the book carves out space for critical inquiry. Many of the chapters consider whether or not ballet can reconcile its past and actually become present, while others see ballet as flexible and willing to be remolded at the hands of those with tools to do so.

The American Nutcracker is a magical retelling of the classic Christmas children's tale with a decidedly American twist. The American Nutcracker combines a story of nutcrackers and dolls come to life with the American log-cabin frontier ethos and the wide diversity of the American experience. A lively plot loosely based on the E.T.A. Hoffman original includes a Nutcracker, a Sugar Plum fairy, a real girl looking to put the excitement back into Christmas, and a diversity of dolls who get involved in an adventure that includes Native Americans, magical happenings, and growing up.
