Description - Segregated Miscegenation by Carlos Hiraldo

This book explores how the presence of African peoples has influenced the national and literary identity of American countries that have a significant black population, but do not imagine themselves primarily as black, such as the United States and Latin American nations such as Brazil, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Tracing the differences and similarities between national literatures and the ways these nations define and stratify racial categorisations, the author shows how the literary imagination works to incorporate, reject and/or deny the numerically and culturally significant presence of African peoples. It questions the current understanding of race in the United States, and at the same time explodes the simplistic understanding of Latinos as one race.
