Oshun’s Daughters: The Search for Womanhood in the Americas, by Vanessa K. Valdés

Free
SKU: CJE 38-1-13

This book’s strength lies in part in the fact that two genres are studied from different geographical areas and in three different linguistic forms — English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The structural design of being divided into four solid chapters which work together to present a comprehensive study of the theme is also a very useful one.
