In "The Devil behind the Mirror," Steven Gregory provides a
compelling and intimate account of the impact that transnational
processes associated with globalization are having on the lives and
livelihoods of people in the Dominican Republic. Grounded in
ethnographic fieldwork conducted in the adjacent towns of Boca
Chica and Andres, Gregory's study deftly demonstrates how
transnational flows of capital, culture, and people are mediated by
contextually specific power relations, politics, and history. He
explores such topics as the informal economy, the making of a
telenova, sex tourism, and racism and discrimination against
Haitians, who occupy the lowest rung on the Dominican economic
ladder. Innovative, beautifully written, and now updated with a new
preface, "The Devil behind the Mirror" masterfully situates the
analysis of global economic change in everyday lives."
