Prostitution, Modernity, and the Making of the Cuban Republic, 1840–1920

This study of Cuban prostitution is firmly grounded in a desire to understand the untidy dynamics of nation building in a colonial and postcolonial setting. It notes that unlike in many other Latin American countries, prostitution regulation in Cuba during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was essentially a colonial project first implemented by Spain and then bolstered by military authorities during the U.S. intervention. It argues that prostitution policy was produced and reproduced, reinforced and revised, debated and defended according to complex interactions between international, national, and local actors and their agendas.

Keywords:   Cuban prostitution, colonial project, Spain, U.S. intervention
