Honor, Status & Law in Modern Latin America

How did popular and elite understandings of honor change in Latin American after the end of colonial rule—and why did they matter? This volume traces the ways honor was defined and defended from the nineteenth century through the populist and nationalist challenges of the 1930s, shedding light on fundamental connections between gender, sexuality, race, class, and political access.
