Latin America has a rich and complex social history marked by slavery, colonialism, dictatorships, rebellions, social movements and revolutions. Comparative Racial Politics in Latin America explores the dynamic interplay between racial politics and hegemonic power in the region. It investigates the fluid intersection of social power and racial politics and their impact on the region's histories, politics, identities and cultures.

Organized thematically with in-depth country case studies and a historical overview of Afro-Latin politics, the volume provides a range of perspectives on Black politics and cutting-edge analyses of Afro-descendant peoples in the region. Regional coverage includes Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti and more. Topics discussed include Afro-Civil Society; antidiscrimination criminal law; legal sanctions; racial identity; racial inequality and labor markets; recent Black electoral participation; Black feminism thought and praxis; comparative Afro-women social movements; the intersection of gender, race and class, immigration and migration; and citizenship and the struggle for human rights. Recognized experts in different disciplinary fields address the depth and complexity of these issues.

Comparative Racial Politics in Latin America contributes to and builds on the study of Black politics in Latin America.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Comparative Racial Politics in Latin America is an exemplary work that brings together scholarship focusing on black movement activism as articulated by Afro-descendant men and women, against persistent inequalities. Afro-descendant women have been at the forefront of articulating the needs of black citizenship. This book will be a great resource for activists, scholars and students interested in black activism and policy changes in Latin America.'-Gladys Mitchell-Walthour, Assistant Professor in the Department of Africology, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

'Located at the cutting edge of the current wave of research on blackness in Latin America, the stellar cast of contributors assembled by Dixon and Johnson in this book provides an outstanding overview of racial politics in Latin America and the Caribbean. Its breadth of coverage and the penetratingly critical stance adopted by its contributors make the book required reading for students and scholars alike.'-Peter Wade, Professor of Social Anthropology, University of Manchester

'This volume ably brings together established and emergent scholars to trace historical and contemporary patterns of black political mobilization in Latin America.'-Juliet Hooker, Professor of Political Science, Brown University
