New Book Publication

The University of Pittsburgh Press proudly announces the publication of a new book by Patricia Richards:Race and the Chilean Miracle: Neoliberalism, Democracy, and Indigenous Rights.

Richards, associate professor of sociology and women’s studies at the University of Georgia,  examines conflicts between Mapuche indigenous people and state and private actors over natural resources, territorial claims, and collective rights in the Araucanía region. Through ground-level fieldwork, extensive interviews with local Mapuche and Chileans, and analysis of contemporary race and governance theory, Richards exposes the ways that local, regional, and transnational realities are shaped by systemic racism in the context of neoliberal multiculturalism. Her compelling analysis offers new perspectives on indigenous rights, race, and neoliberal multiculturalism in Latin America and globally.
