"In Remixing Reggaeton: The Cultural Politics of Race in Puerto Rico, Petra R. Rivera-Rideau has created an insightful and engaging work of music scholarship that forms an important contribution to the literature on Caribbean and Latin American music." -- Gregory J. Robinson * Music Reference Services Quarterly *
"Petra R. Rivera-Rideau's Remixing Reggaeton presents an insightful reading of reggaeton as a discursive cultural practice inextricably linked to the experience of blackness in the African diaspora.... Well written and organized, and convincingly argued, her timely study resonates with and contributes significantly to current academic understandings of music, race, gender, sexuality, and nation, and their intersections within the context of the African diaspora." -- Francisco D. Lara * Notes *
"Remixing Reggaeton makes an extensive contribution to the literature on both Puerto Rican and African diaspora studies. . . . The book offers a refreshing take on the potentiality of cultural production to rewrite the narrative of la gran familia puertorriquena and generate more inclusive notions of Puerto Ricanness. In the end, Rivera-Rideau not only decenters whiteness in her work, but also foregrounds the messiness of Puerto Rican identities." -- Julie Torres * Latino Studies *
