Elizabeth S. Manley

University Press of Florida

This chapter connects the social and economic history of tourism in the Dominican Republic and Haiti with its impact on masculinity, gender identity, and heterosexual performance. Elizabeth Manley's analysis builds on recent research in anthropology that views sex work as contributing substantially to conflicts of gender relations and changing gender norms. Manley analyzes how these relate to the political economy and development.
