  • The Haitian Revolution in the Literary Imaginationby Philip Kaisary

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 29.50

    The Haitian Revolution (1791?1804) reshaped the debates about slavery and freedom throughout the Atlantic world, accelerated the abolitionist movement, precipitated rebellions in neighboring territories, and intensified both repression and antislavery sentiment. The story of the birth of the world?s first independent black republic has since held... more...

  • Race, Romance, and Rebellionby Colleen C. O'Brien

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 24.50

    As in many literatures of the New World grappling with issues of slavery and freedom, stories of racial insurrection frequently coincided with stories of cross-racial romance in nineteenth-century U.S. print culture. Colleen O?Brien explores how authors such as Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Livermore, and Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda imagined the expansion of... more...

  • Bodies and Bonesby Tanya L. Shields

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 24.50

    In Bodies and Bones, Tanya Shields argues that a repeated engagement with the Caribbean?s iconic and historic touchstones offers a new sense of (inter)national belonging that brings an alternative and dynamic vision to the gendered legacy of brutality against black bodies, flesh, and bone. Using a distinctive methodology she calls "feminist rehearsal"... more...

  • Locating the Destituteby Stanka Radovic

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 24.50

    While postcolonial discourse in the Caribbean has drawn attention to colonialism?s impact on space and spatial hierarchy, Stanka Radovi? asks both how ordinary people as "users" of space have been excluded from active and autonomous participation in shaping their daily spatial reality and how they challenge this exclusion. In a comparative interdisciplinary... more...

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 29.50

    Focusing on slave narratives from the Atlantic world of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, this interdisciplinary collection of essays suggests the importance?even the necessity?of looking beyond the iconic and ubiquitous works of Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass, and Harriet Jacobs. In granting sustained critical attention to writers... more...

  • The Pan American Imaginationby Stephen M. Park

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 27.50

    In the history of the early twentieth-century Americas, visions of hemispheric unity flourished, and the notion of a transnational American identity was embraced by artists, intellectuals, and government institutions. In The Pan American Imagination, Stephen Park explores the work of several Pan American modernists who challenged the body of knowledge... more...

  • Bioethics and Vulnerabilityby Florencia Luna; Peter Herissone-Kelly; Laura Pakter

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 56.00

    This book presents some of the challenges bioethics in Latin America faces today.

  • Literary Amazoniaby Nicomedes Suarez-Arauz

    UPF 2003; US$ 34.95
