Camayd-Freixas has brought together a very worthy set of contributions that add to the burgeoning study of Orientalism in Latin America.
In its historical and geographical scope and in its theoretical
sophistication, this is a major contribution to the burgeoning
study of orientalism in Latin America and to the ever more urgent
discussion of issues of multicultural identity in the region.
—Juan E. De Castro, author of Mestizo Nations: Culture, Race, and Conformity in Latin American Literature
The book is outstanding in its breadth of geographical, historical,
and racial scope.
—Robert Chao Romero, author of The Chinese in Mexico, 1882–1940
