The intersection of race and sex in Latin America is a subject touched upon by many disciplines but this is the only book that deals solely with these issues. Interracial sexual relations are often a key mythic basis for Latin American national identities, but these concepts are underexplored in English language works. 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 social sciences, particularly to students of anthropology, gender studies and Latin American studies.
