About this title

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.

About the Author:

Peter Wade is Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester. He is the author of four previous books: Blackness and Race Mixture (1993), Race and Ethnicity in Latin America (Pluto, 1997), Music, Race and Nation: Música Tropical in Colombia (2000) and  Race, Nature and Culture: An Anthropological Perspective (Pluto, 2002).
