Product Description

Imported from USA

From the Inside Flap
--------------------

"Laura Briggs has given us a very smart book. She's opened my eyes to Puerto Rican women's centrality to the entire
American imperial enterprise. Pay attention to prostitution―debates about it, maneuvers to control it, reliance on
it―and we'll gain a more realistic sense of political life. Briggs shows us how true that is. I'm going to recommend
this book to everyone."―Cynthia Enloe, author of Maneuvers: The International Politics of Militarizing Women's Lives

"A superb analysis of how U.S. colonialism in Puerto Rico had profound effects on sex, gender, and racial formations in
both nations. Briggs sets new standards for the study of race and gender in U.S. women's history."―Peggy Pascoe,
University of Oregon

Women's Lives

"This book not only brings a significant original contribution to the analyses and understanding of an important period
in Puerto Rican history, it also brings rich and original information and perspectives to gender, cultural, and
sociological studies. While reading it, I felt amazed by its solid documentation and fresh analysis of a period that has
been 'studied' extensively, but in a very traditional way. The book brings sharp understanding to the past, and also
builds links to the present and future, clearly showing its pertinence and relevance for scholars, students and the
general public."--Yamila Azize-Vargas, author of "La mujer en la lucha (History of Puerto Rican Feminism, 1898-1930)
