Editorial Reviews

Review

Other Americans traces the US imaginary of Latin America as a land of violence and sensuality. Employing melodrama and affect theory, Other Americans offers exemplary close readings of a wide range of media produced in and about Latin America. What emerges is a lucid conception of Latin American as a collection of negative affects picturing America’s displaced investment in lawlessness.” —Agustín Zarzosa, Purchase College, SUNY

“In this richly rendered book, Matthew Bush examines the cultural imaginary of Latin America in the United States, asking how cultural works produce feelings of Latin Americanness for US audiences. Focusing on the power of melodrama to represent conflict and alterity across global borders, Bush examines affectively powerful artwork that both generates and complicates simplified understandings of Latin America—and can even engender new hemispheric connections.
Other Americans is an exciting and important book.” —Elisabeth Anker, author of Ugly Freedoms
