Masquerade Politics - 93 edition

Masquerade Politics (ISBN10: 0520078381; ISBN13: 9780520078383)
ISBN13: 978-0520078383
ISBN10: 0520078381

Summary: Carnival, that image of sensuous frivolity, is shown by Abner Cohen to be a masquerade for the dynamic relations between culture and politics. His masterful study details the transformation of a local, polyethnic London fair to a massive, exclusively West Indian carnival, known as ''Europe's biggest street festival,'' which in 1976 occasioned a bloody confrontation between black youth and the police and which has since become a fiercely contested cultural event. Cohen contrasts the d
evelopment of the London carnival with the development of other carnivalesque movements, including the Renaissance Pleasure Faire of California. His valuable analysis of these relatively little-explored urban cultural movements advances further the theoretical formulations developed in his previous studies.
