    schema:reviewBody ""Writing in an accessible, compelling style, de Sousa argues that when cultures that define themselves as ideological opposites meet, they intermingle in a process of negotiation and identity exchanges. Placing the drama in a historical and cultural context, he examines a variety of topics, including a clash of gender systems; text as a repository of a culture's values, beliefs, prejudices, and practices; erasure of memory and appropriation of identity; the interplay of ecology, culture, and race; and the dual process of cultural estrangement and reintegration. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, de Sousa relies on original archival research and draws on feminist and gender studies, ecology, history, and anthropology. In the process he recovers a wealth of information on race and gender relations in early modern Europe."--Jacket." ;
