1 - 2 weeks availability


The tango is easily the most iconic dance of the twentieth century and now of the twenty-first. This historical text peels back the propaganda that characterizes the dance, revealing both its true nature and that of the culture that created it. Topics covered include the tango's earliest origins, the sexualization of the dance, its place in Argentinian culture, and the mythological prohibition against it. This work explores the tango's unparalleled popularity, finding in it the irreducible universal - our common humanity and our creative solidarity.
