The Mulatto Republic

The Mulatto Republic: Class, Race, and Dominican National Identity

by April J. Mayes

Once celebrated as a mulatto racial paradise, the Dominican Republic has abandoned its Haitian and black influences in favor of white, Hispanic culture, and this book aims to find out why. Was this shift in national ideologies caused by the authoritarian Trujillo regime, or does it represent what happens when two countries share an island and a conflicted relationship over a long period of time? The Mulatto Republic takes a close look at how Dominicans define themselves today through race, skin color, and culture, providing an enlightening social history.
