    1. definitely only for the most pedantic of reggaeton enthusiasts (if such people even exist?). it's a collection of essays relating to reggaeton's origins, popularization, masculinity, politics, racial problems, etc. probably the most detailed book you'll find on the subject, although a bit dated now that reggaeton has decayed, returned and basically converted into trap music for the most part, it's a great way to understand everything about it if you haven't lived it first-hand.
