Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Mestizo: a person of mixed blood; specifically, a person of mixed European and American Indian ancestry. <BR>Serge Gruzinski, the renowned historian of Latin America, offers a brilliant, original critique of colonization and globalization in "The Mestizo Mind. Looking at the 15th century colonization of Latin America, Gruzinski documents the melange that resulted: colonized mating with colonizers; Indians joining the Catholic Church and colonial government; and Amerindian visualizations of Jesus and Perseus. These physical and cultural encounters created a new culture, a new individual, and a phenomenon we now call globalization. Revealing globalization's early origins, Gruzinski then fast forwards to the contemporary melange seen in the films of Peter Greenaway and Wong Kar-Wai to argue that over 500 years of intermingling has produced the mestizo mind, a state of mixed thinking that we all possess. <BR>A masterful alchemy of history, anthropology, philosophy and visual analysis, "The Mestizo Mind definitively conceptualizes the clash of civilizations in the style of Homi Bhabha, Gayatri Spivak and Anne McClintock.
