Tango by Robert Farris Thompson

Book Description

A generously illustrated book in which renowned art historian Farris Thompson gives readers the definitive account of the tango. From its evolution in the 19th century to its representations in Hollywood, Thompson demonstrates that tango is not only brilliant choreography, but also text, music, art and philosophy. Passionately argued, unparalleled in its research and depth of understanding, Tango is a monumental achievement. A fascinating meditation on the history of all aspects of the dance.' - Chicago Sun-Times'
