The Latin American Cultural Studies Reader brings together thirty-six field-defining essays by the most prominent theorists of Latin American cultural studies. Written over the past several decades, these essays provide an assessment of Latin American cultural studies, an account of the field’s historical formation, and an outline of its significant ideological and methodological trends and theoretical controversies. With many essays appearing in English for the first time, the collection offers a comprehensive view of the specific problems, topics, and methodologies that characterize Latin American cultural studies vis-à-vis British and U.S. cultural studies.

Divided into sections preceded by brief introductory essays, this volume traces the complex development of Latin American cultural studies from its roots in literary criticism and the economic, social, political, and cultural transformations wrought by neoliberal policies in the 1970s. It tracks the impassioned debates within the field during the early 1990s; explores different theoretical trends, including studies of postcolonialism, the subaltern, and globalization; and reflects on the significance of Latin American cultural studies for cultural studies projects outside Latin America. Considering literature, nationalism, soccer, cinema, postcolonialism, the Zapatistas, community radio, and much more, The Latin American Cultural Studies Reader is an invaluable resource for all those who want to understand the past, present, and future of Latin American cultural studies.

Review:

"[A]n indispensable reference and teaching tool for Latin Americanists in the humanities. . . . Highly recommended."
--David R. Thompson," Choice"

"[An] important book. . . . This will be a useful tool for Latin Americanists and others in cognate fields of the humanities."
--Forum for Modern Language Studies

"[A] most competent text. . . . [B]ears witness to the complexities and intricacies of Latin American cultural studies. . . . I wish this volume had been available in my graduate years."
--Hector Fernandez L'Hoeste," The Americas"

"[I]mpressive. . . . The Latin American Studies Reader . . . contains . . . a rich variety of texts and bibliography. . . . [T]his volume, with its three informative and intelligent introductory essays, represents a landmark in the history of critical thought about Latin America."
--Sara Castro-Klaren, Modern Language Notes

"That ["The Latin American Cultural Studies Reader"] brilliantly delivers on [its] ambitious goal testifies to the breadth, vision, and rigor of its editors. . . . "The Latin American Cultural Studies Reader" will serve as an insightful, balanced, indispensable guide to a hard-to-define, much contested, interdisciplinary field. . . . [S]cholars across . . . academic disciplines will be referencing this book and assigning it to graduate seminars for some years to come. More important still, coming at a crisis point in cultural studies in general, it should help reinvigorate a field worn down by more than a decade of academic culture wars and internal squabbles."
--Robert Buffington," Journal of Latin American Anthropology"
