About this product
- DescriptionIn The Devil behind the Mirror, Steven Gregory provides a compelling and intimate account of the impact that transnational processes associated with globalization are having on the lives and livelihoods of people in the Dominican Republic. Grounded in ethgraphic fieldwork conducted in the adjacent towns of Boca Chica and Andres, Gregory's study deftly demonstrates how transnational flows of capital, culture, and people are mediated by contextually specific power relations, politics, and history. He explores such topics as the informal ecomy, the making of a televa, sex tourism, and racism and discrimination against Haitians, who occupy the lowest rung on the Dominican ecomic ladder. Invative, beautifully written, and w updated with a new preface, The Devil behind the Mirror masterfully situates the analysis of global ecomic change in everyday lives.
