  • Salsa Worldby Sydney Hutchinson

    Temple University Press 2013; US$ 89.50

    Since its emergence in the 1960s, salsa has transformed from a symbol of Nuyorican pride into an emblem of pan-Latinism and finally a form of global popular culture.

  • Tangoby Mike Gonzalez; Marianella Yanes

    Reaktion Books 2013; US$ 25.00

    Born on the unlit streets of Buenos Aires, tango was inspired by the music of European immigrants who crossed the ocean to Argentina, lured by the promise of a better life.

    University Press of Florida 2012; US$ 14.99

    The Argentine tango is one of the world?s best-known partner dances. Though tango is much admired and discussed, very little has been written on its ongoing evolution.

  • Capoeiraby Nestor Capoeira

    North Atlantic Books 2012; US$ 15.95

    Capoeira is simultaneously a dance, a fight, and a game. Created by the Africans brought to Brazil as slaves beginning in 1500, capoeira was forbidden by law but survived underground. When open practice was allowed in the 1930s it soon became very popular. Capoeira came to America around 1975, and has become widely recognized by dancers and martial... more...

  • In Strangers’ Armsby Beatriz Dujovne

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2011; US$ 38.00

    The tango is easily the most iconic dance of the last century, its images as familiar as an old friend. But are they the whole story? Peeling back the poster propaganda that has always characterized the tango publicly, this intimate study shows the invisible heart of the dance and the culture that raised it. Drawing on direct experience and conversations... more...

  • Disco Danceby Lori Ortiz

    ABC-CLIO 2011; US$ 35.00

    Americans apparently had a love-hate relationship with disco. After the 1977 blockbuster movie Saturday Night Fever, an estimated 15,000 new discotheques opened across the United States. But in July of 1979, a Chicago baseball stadium was filled beyond capacity, drawn by an ill-conceived radio station promotion inviting listeners to publicly express... more...
