Product description


Peter Wade ... applies his previous experience and theoretical sophistication to the analysis of Latin America as a whole, focusing not only on the descendants of African slaves but also on indigenous people. ... [this] book is intelligent and easy-to-read, and represents a significant contribution to the knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of race and ethnicity in Latin America. -- Monica Quijada, author of Patterns of Prejudice Summarizing the extensive literature on race and ethnicity in Latin America in a mere 118 pages is a daunting task. The British anthropologist Peter Wade... has not been scared away from doing it. [He] cover[s] the main themes and offers a comprehensive overview of the relevant debates. It is therefore an excellent textbook. -- Michiel Baud, European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies An interesting, clearly written book, well illustrated by examples, which will be a valued introduction to [the] issues in Latin America. -- SLAS Newsletter October 97 A much needed up to date and accessible discussion of key issues in Latin America -- A. Sillitoe, Social Sciences, Staffordshire University An excellent source on past and present debates, and a coherent and insightful set of proposals concerning methodology -- International Affairs
