Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is a remarkable achievement. On one hand, it critically transcends the risk of parochial colonial nostalgia implicit in 'Lusophone,' as much as it overcomes the implicit Anglophone bias of 'the Black Atlantic.'On the other, the historical and anthropological processes of colonial and diasporic formations are richly analyzed as encounters, as confrontations, and as settings for cultural creation." - Miguel Vale de Almeida, Professor of Social Anthropology, Instituto Superior de Ciências do Trabalho e da Empresa, Lisbon
