Racial Subordination in Latin America: The Role of the State, Customary Law, and the New Civil Rights Response (2013)

Author
Tanya Katerí Hernández

Summary
This book disrupts the traditional narrative of Latin America’s legally benign racial past by comprehensively examining the existence of customary laws of racial regulation and the historic complicity of Latin American states in erecting and sustaining racial hierarchies. Tanya Katerí Hernández is the first author to consider the salience of the customary law of race regulation for the contemporary development of racial equality laws across the region
