About this book

In this collection, leading scholars focus on the contemporary meanings and diverse experiences of blackness in specific countries of the hemisphere, including the United States. The anthology introduces new perspectives on comparative forms of racialization in the Americas and presents its implications both for Latin American societies, and for Latinos' relations with African Americans in the U.S.

Reviews

"Extremely urgent for studies of comparative race relations..." - Jossiana Aroyo, University of Michigan

"A significant and much-needed contribution to study of Afro-Latino issues, and to the comparative study of 'race' and racial formations and transformations in the US today." - Lourdes Martinez-Echazabal, University of California, Santa Cruz

"Timely and path-breaking. This book will be welcomed by all those interested in race, multiculturalism, transnationalism and diaspora in the Americas." - Peter Wade, University of Manchester

"This book is a precious tool for students of Afro-Latino and Latino Studies." - Antonio Sérgio Alfredo Guimarães, Universidade de São Paulo

"Neither Enemies nor Friends is absolutely one of the most outstanding, exciting and well-written collections of essays on the issue of race relations that I have read in a long time. The volume coherently explores the multifaceted dimensions of relations between and among Latinos, Blacks and Afro-Latinos, in a refreshing and unsurpassed manner. Without question, this volume constitutes one of the most unique and formidable compilations of writings on the topic, within the field of Latino and Latin-American Studies." - Antonia Darder, Professor of Educational Policy Studies and Latino Studies, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
