An engaging, historical look at fin de siScle Buenos Aires that brings to life the vibrant culture that was to produce one of the world's largest Anarchist movements. Cultural history at its best, Paradoxes of Utopia explores how a revolutionary ideology was woven into the ordinary lives of thousands of people, creating a complex tapestry of symbols, rituals and daily practices that supported - and, indeed, created - the Argentine labour movement.
