📙 Body, Nation, and Narrative in the Americas by Kristin E. Pitt (auth.) — pdf free


This book contextualizes 21st century representations of disappearance, torture, and detention within a historical framework of inter-American narratives. Examining a range of sources, Pitt finds a persistent focus on the body that links contemporary practices of political terror to concerns about corporality and sovereignty.
