Tourism and the Globalization of Emotions. The Intimate Economy of Tango.

Törnqvist, Maria | 2013

[Reissue] New York: Routledge.

Throughout the chapters, the author assesses how, in an explosive economic and political context, people's emotional lives intermingle with a tourism industry that has formed at the intersection of close embrace dances and dollars. Bringing economies of intimacy centre stage, the book describes how a global condition is lived bodily, emotionally and politically, and offers a rich, provocative contribution to theorizing today's global flows of people, money, and fragile Dreams.
