English-Speaking Communities in Latin America

by

English-Speaking Communities in Latin America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since Independence at the beginning of the 19th century, Latin America has maintained close links with Britain. This book examines the cultural and social implications of the relationship through a series of case-studies that focus on British, Irish, and West Indian immigrants and their descendants in Mexico, Central, and South America. The contributors—historians, anthropologists, and sociolinguists—explore the past, present, and putative future of English-speaking communities in Latin America and the relationships with their host societies.

Book News Annotation:

Historians, anthropologists, and sociolinguists, mostly from anglophone countries, examine British, Irish, and West Indian immigrants and their descendants in Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean Basin, and consider the future of English-speaking communities in Latin America and their relationship with their host societies. The 14 studies include discussions of the speculative-to- substantive boom in Mexico from 1821 to 1911, the British and their descendants in Chilean Patagonia, and stages in the evolution of a cultural identity among the Bay Islands English. They overlap some with a March 1997 conference in London.
