9780813034454: Imaging the Chinese in Cuban Literature and Culture

"Critically up-to-date and eminently readable, Imaging the Chinese in Cuban Literature and Culture provides a penetrating introduction to the relatively little-known experiences of the Chinese diaspora in Cuba and the fiction and poetry it has generated."--Juan E. de Castro, The New School

"The most comprehensive study of Chinese in Cuban literature and culture available in any language. Lopez-Calvo has consulted all the imaginable sources and has left no stone unturned. This is an imperative, fascinating, necessary, and timely topic."--William Luis, Vanderbilt University

More than 150 years ago, the first Chinese contract laborers ("coolies") arrived in Cuba to work the colonial plantations. Eventually, over 150,000 Chinese immigrated to the island, and their presence has had a profound effect on all aspects of Cuban cultural production, from food to books to painting.

Ignacio Lopez-Calvo's interpretations often go against the grain of earlier research, refusing to conceive of Cuban identity either in terms of a bipolar black/white opposition or an idyllic and harmonious process of miscegenation. He also counters traditional representations of chinos mambises, Chinese immigrants who fought for Cuba in the Wars of Independence against Spain.

Imaging the Chinese in Cuban Literature and Culture fills a void in literary criticism, breaking new ground within the small field of Sino-Cuban studies. It is destined to set the tone for years to come.
