An interesting secondary source, from a performance studies perspective (best read after Suzuki). Allain consistently treats the problematic issues of analyzing Suzuki and his "method", as well as Western interpretations of East Asian traditions' and artefacts' cultural contexts (particularly in practice by performers), with appropriate qualification and humility.
