Is this the picture of a villain or a hero, a criminal or a social bandit, a fighter for the people? Revolutionaries, Rebels and Robbers delivers a comprehensive study of banditry in Latin America, studying both the actual practices and effects of banditry as well as its representation in books, film, and other media. Examining banditry in Mexico, the Hispanic US Southwest, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, and Cuba, and making use of tools from Latin American and Hispanic studies, film studies, visual studies, and legal and social history, this book offers the most detailed and wide-ranging study of its kind presently available.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||The University of Wales Press||Series/Report no.:||Iberian and Latin American Studies||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Author||Keywords:||Latin Bandit myth; Social theory; Latin American literature; Latin American history||Other versions:||https://www.uwp.co.uk/book/revolutionaries-rebels-and-robbers/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Baker, P.
