Republic Reader: History, Culture, Politics (The Latin America Readers) ] ᦞ Kindle Ebook Author Eric Paul Roorda ᧏ The best available collection of writing in English for anyone wanting a broad and varied introduction to Dominican history, politics and culture Very much a book for dipping into, which works well for the appealingly diverse sections on religion, popular culture and the Dominican diaspora but means the history sections, necessarily lacking a consistent narrative, work better for those with some prior knowledge of the countrys past The Rough Guide to the Dominican Republic Roorda, Derby, and Gonzlez use source materials from onsite actors observers, government officials, writers, and intellectuals Dominican and otherwise to add an intimacy and sense of familiarity to the books narrative They blend and merge important and formative events and actors that make up the formal history of the Dominican Republic with accounts designed to help readers understand the Dominican character and bases for social norms The dozens of essays and accounts some from contributors familiar to casual readers, some less familiar , with an appropriate apportioning of emphases on nations influential in Dominican affairs such as the US , complete a historiography that is both challenging and insightful In a collection of different tiles in the Dominican mosaic, nothing is really trivial here Highly Recommended Upper level undergraduates and above W J Nelson Choice Curious travelers, study abroad students and faculty, and Latinamericanists generally will find this book to be a solid departure point to understand issues of race, religion the Virgen of Altagracia, syncreticism , music, gendered roles machismo and marianismo , and the turbulent imprint of caudillos on the evolution of the Dominican Republic Over 150 suggested readings point the way to further explore an island in the Caribbean whose history, culture and politics have much to say about the human
