The story begins with a look at Argentina in the 1500s and the development of the area now known as Buenos Aires. The early dances that eventually evolved into the tango are explored. The narrative follows the dance form as it travels to Europe before World War I, then throughout the world and back home. The tango’s relation to other art forms and its symbolism are discussed. There are over 250 illustrations, a tango “family tree,” a timeline, a bibliography, and an index. (HF)
