I like this book because it is well written, and easy to understand for somebody with an understanding of dance and music but not a professional. It goes into good detail on background of the Alman and other Measures in England, and links them forward as well into early country dance. It has a section on the music, a section on the steps, and on the choreography. This book could be used to reconstruct Alman's from the beginning if you wanted to, or it gives excellent information for improving dancing and performance.
