It plays an especially important role in Latin America, where urban areas hold a near-monopoly on resources and are home to an expanding population. The essays in this collection assert that women s views of the city are unique and revealing. For the first time, Unfolding the City addresses issues of gender and the urban in literatureparticularly lesser-known works of literaturewritten by Latin American women from Mexico City, Santiago, and Buenos Aires. The contributors propose new mappings of urban space; interpret race and class dynamics; and describe Latin American urban centers in the context of globalization. Contributors: Debra A.
