Product description

Review

"'Dancing in the Streets' interweaves sources from historical
anthropology, philosophy, sociology, psychology, neuroscience and popular
cultural studies"
-- Financial Times Magazine

"...an oddly gripping book... Ehrenreich is on to something
here." -- Observer

"An admirably lucid, level-headed history of outbreaks of
collective joy from Dionysus to the Grateful Dead" -- Terry Eagleton

"Barbara Erenreich wants to affirm the value of ecstatic group
celebration...(a)reporter's nose for subject and information" -- Scotland on Sunday

"Ehrenreich's analysis is fascinating, and seems intuitively
right... This is a good book, mostly because it makes you think"
-- Sunday Telegraph

"The title of the book alone did my weary heart good... a message
to be welcomed, pondered - and enjoyed." -- The Times

"This is a passionate argument in favour of communal
celebration... (It) opens an important subject to the general reader."
-- The Sunday Times

"This is a thought-provoking and sober look at a delightfully
unsober topic." -- London Review of Books
