New Book: The Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean

Described by the press as “the first single-authored comprehensive introduction to major contemporary research trends, issues, and debates on the anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean,” The Anthropology of Latin America and the Caribbean by Harry Sanabria of the University of Pittsburgh provides wide and historically informed coverage of key facets of Latin American and Caribbean societies and their cultural and historical development as well as the powerful role of power and inequality in this development.

One reviewer writes, “The text moves well and builds over time, paying close attention to balancing both the Caribbean and Latin America as geographic regions, Spanish and non-Spanish speaking countries, and historical and contemporary issues in the field. I found the geographic breadth to be especially impressive.”

Another notes that the contents “reflect the insights of an anthropologist who knows Latin America intimately and extensively.”
