Notes:
223 p, Ileana Rodriguez's House/Garden/Nation: Space, Gender, and Ethnicity in Post-Colonial Latin American Literatures by Women offers an insightful look into the role the feminine has played in the constructions of nation and nationalism in critical moments of Latin American history. Although feminism is at the center of the study, it is always predicated by concerns of ethnicity and social class. (BNET);
