About this title

Synopsis:

“A major contribution to the scholarship of gender and sexuality in the Caribbean.”--A. Lynn Bolles, University of Maryland

This volume provides an engaging interdisciplinary approach to the study of gender and sexual relations in the Caribbean.  Essays from sociological, literary, historical, and political science approaches cover the Hispanic-, French-, and English-speaking Caribbean areas and address topics such as sexuality, homosexuality, culture, the body, the status of women, and the wider social relations that inform these subjects.
