520    "There are approximately 150 million people of African 
       descent in Latin America yet Afro-descendants have been 
       consistently marginalized as undesirable elements of the 
       society. Latin America has nevertheless long prided itself
       on its absence of U.S.-styled state-mandated Jim Crow 
       racial segregation laws. This book disrupts the 
       traditional narrative of Latin America's legally benign 
       racial past by comprehensively examining the existence of 
       customary laws of racial regulation and the historic 
       complicity of Latin American states in erecting and 
       sustaining racial hierarchies. Tanya Katerí Hernández is 
       the first author to consider the salience of the customary
       law of race regulation for the contemporary development of
       racial equality laws across the region. Therefore, the 
       book has a particular relevance for the contemporary U.S. 
       racial context in which Jim Crow laws have long been 
       abolished and a "post-racial" rhetoric undermines the 
       commitment to racial equality laws and policies amidst a 
       backdrop of continued inequality"--|cProvided by
