Product Overview

"Bold in its conception, brilliant in its execution, this book catches the eye and stimulates the imagination through its thoughtful examination of diverse visual representations from colonial and postcolonial Peru. It engages the mind and lingers in the memory for its original and persuasive reframing of the centrality of vision to issues of science, technology, power and race in the modern world. It will be of interest not only to Latin American specialists, to historians of art and photography, and to cultural studies audiences broadly, but to all those who seek to understand the globalization of images and ideologies in the contemporary era."--Benjamin Orlove, University of California, Davis

Editors Note Through an intensive examination of photographs and engravings from European, Peruvian, and U.S. archives, anthropologist Deborah Poole explores the role visual images and technologies have played in shaping modern perceptions of race.
