Dancing in the Streets Details

Barbara Ehrenreich's human history of celebration and communion, Dancing in the Streets, explores the how and why of humans coming together to express collective joy. Ranging from the ancient history of Mesopotamians all the way up to the dance nightclubs of the modern century, the author explores the intersections of celebrations from different places, time, and cultures.

Weddings, to sports, cave drawings to war, the book discusses the synchronized movement and the modern sense of community expresses in these groups. Using history and anthropology of many cultures, Ehrenreich explores the irrepressible urge of human nature to celebrate the beauty of life.
