 About the Book 

This book uncovers the role of gender and sexuality discourses in theconstruction of the Cuban nation and how they have been used to defineand regulate the notions of nationality and sovereignty from thenineteenth century to the present. Through archival work and theanalysis of war diaries, press campaigns, novels and magazines, thebook provides a rigorous historical analysis of how the sexual/gender“others” have been coupled with social and political deviance atdifferent periods in Cuban history. The second part of the bookupdates this debate through a pioneer ethnographic study of Cubantransvestites, transsexuals, and homosexuals.
