The Peoples of "Latin" America and the Caribbean
By means of monographs and edited collections, Lexington Books publishes new research on understudied aspects of both the history of and contemporary affairs affecting indigenous peoples and other, usually minority, populations in the Central and South America and the Caribbean. Although a new specific effort, this initiative for thinking globally/historically builds upon already-published Lexington works on the recent past and current affairs for the purpose of becoming a comprehensive resource and established publication series. Many important qualitative and quantitative determinants and aspects of the transformation affecting the peoples of the region have not yet been systematically analyzed, and Lexington’s The Peoples of "Latin" America and the Caribbean seeks to ensure a space is made for this to occur. An outlet for empirical research on a broad variety of themes, issues of specific interest that too often remain either under the radar of mainstream publishing on the region or effectively on the sideline include: ethnonationalism; colonialism and empire; concepts of identity; theories of race, nationalism, racism, and identity; political radicalization; mixed heritages and the study of ethnicity; religious identification; links of stress, poverty, and ethnicity among the indigenous and other ethnic/national populations; transnational organized crime and its threats to national/minority communities; comparative studies with indigenous peoples outside the region; local history; multi-cultural relations; cultural innovation; ethnic geography (including diaspora); minority protection; ethnic tensions and places of contested memory, etc. Proposals for research monographs, edited collections, and, where appropriate, doctoral theses will be considered for publication. Lexington is also open for a limited number of proposals of re-publications of seminal but not widely available works and translation projects, particularly those presented in trans-disciplinary or interdisciplinary fashion.
