about

Drawing on extensive anthropological fieldwork, Peter Wade shows how the concept of "blackness" and discrimination are deeply embedded in different social levels and contexts—from region to neighborhood, and from politics and economics to housing, marriage, music, and personal identity.

From Our Editors

Peter Wade focuses on the 'racial democracy' of Colombia-- specifically the black population of the Choco province--to explore the significance of culture and class in a racially mixed population.

Editorial Reviews

Wade's insistence on analytic issues throughout makes it impossible to read this as a book simply about race relations in Colombia. A major contribution to several fields of scholarship.
