An Introduction

Rate this:
This fascinating book gives readers a firsthand look at the popular culture of Latin America -- its dance, cooking, art, carnivals, music, romance, funerals, monuments, medicine, and humor. Popular culture encapsulates the pleasure in everyday life, and Latin American Popular Culture shows how it offers moments of laughter (through jokes, satire, and simple foolishness); of delight from jobs well done (whether cooking, plowing, fixing a carburetor, or setting a table with flowers); of escape from dreary daily life (in festivals, drinking, romance, or dreams created by comic books and television); and of living well (by listening to current music, dancing the latest steps, or wearing the hottest fashions). This book is an entertaining introduction to the complex and unique world of Latin American history, popular culture, and civilization.
