Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. The intersection of race and sex in Latin America is a subject touched upon by many disciplines but this is the first book to deal solely with these issues. Interracial sexual relations are often a key mythic basis for Latin American national identities, but the importance of this has been underexplored. Peter Wade provides a pioneering overview of the growing literature on race and sex in the region, covering historical aspects and contemporary debates. He includes both black and indigenous people in the frame, as well as mixed and white people, avoiding the implication that race means black-white relations. Challenging but accessible, this book will appeal across the humanities and social sciences, particularly to students of anthropology, gender studies, history and Latin American studies.

Synopsis : The intersection of race and sex in Latin America is a subject touched upon by many disciplines but this is the first book to deal solely with these issues.

Interracial sexual relations are often a key mythic basis for Latin American national identities, but the importance of this has been underexplored. Peter Wade provides a pioneering overview of the growing literature on race and sex in the region, covering historical aspects and contemporary debates. He includes both black and indigenous people in the frame, as well as mixed and white people, avoiding the implication that "race" means "black-white" relations.

Challenging but accessible, this book will appeal across the humanities and social sciences, particularly to students of anthropology, gender studies, history and Latin American studies.

Critique: The major contribution of this study lies in its inclusiveness, discussing whites, blacks, indigenous peoples, mixed races, males, females, homosexuals, and heterosexuals. Not only does it consider race and sex across the demographic spectrum, but it accepts the dynamic process of interaction as highly unpredictable. Highly recommended for all levels and libraries (F. W. Knight, Johns Hopkins University reviewing for Choice)

Fluent and accessible, Peter Wade's book provides a magisterial overview of the intersecting dynamics of race and sexuality in Latin America. As a synthesis of theory and substantive studies, it is outstanding in its breadth and originality. (Sarah Radcliffe, Reader in Latin American Geography, University of Cambridge)

Peter Wade?s new, tightly argued book is obligatory reading. It goes well beyond conventional wisdom on the ?mutual constitution of sex and race?. Race and Sex demonstrates how race ideology, by legitimating the socio-economic hierarchies of colonial and postcolonial Latin America, conditioned social reproduction through  unequal gender relations and sexual imagining. (Verena Stolcke, Emeritus Professor, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)
