DANCING IN THE STREETS - A HISTORY OF COLLECTIVE JOY

À propos

Uncovers the origins of communal celebration in human biology and culture. Although sixteenth-century Europeans began to view mass festivities as foreign and 'savage', the author shows that they were indigenous to the West, from the ancient Greek's worship of Dionysus to the medieval practices of Christianity as a 'danced religion'.
