The first chapter covers two points in the Puerto Rican culture that created the nation of shame. One of the events is the invasion of the island of Puerto Rico by the United States. As the book continues the author examines a second historical event that fuels the way identity of Puerto Rico as being shameful.

These explorations of shame show the extent the culture has endured due to these moments in History. The author continues this agenda with exploration of Puerto Rican cultural media and merchandise. While the film was an outlet for filmmakers; West Side Story has an immense affection in the Puerto Rican culture. Holly Woodland was born in Puerto Rico but most of his life he identified as a white woman and the shame of his Puerto Rican body. As well as Madonna the author argues that her status transcultural dominatrix would not have been possible without Puerto Ricans The explorations of Woodland and Madonna use of Puerto Rican bodies the author shows that shame and dignity is lost without knowing ones true self.

This move to writing in English brought the author more praise and attention and added value to previous works. Having a difference acceptance in the culture is something that occurs in many cultures similar to the United States accepting different forms of media due to the different cultures taste. In the opposite spectrum with Ricky Martin the author argues that his light skin was the ability of his crossover success. The author states that the success of Ricky Martin reduced the shame and his eventual queerness would destroy the image that he has represented.

The outing of Ricky Martin did not affect the culture it helped it when he focused to create more traditional Island music with his release. She explores moments of History with West Side Story to the success of Ricky Martin and how the shame based on the historical elements has changed. The author proved the extent of the thesis presenting the views which are focused on sexual identity and shame. Customers who bought this item also bought. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.

Although there is an attempt to sell this book to Ricky's fans by putting Ricky's picture on the cover, if you are a Ricky Martin fan, don't buy this book. The author clearly hates and envies Ricky and the chapter on him is insulting and extremely negative. The rest of the book contains nothing to redeem it. I am sorry that I spent any money on this spiteful, useless book. It boggles my mind how anyone could think that this book is spiteful and useless.

Product details

I have read this book cover to cover and find it to be a wonderfully written and sophisticated book, even humbling to most who read it. Also, after you read the book, you understand that the cover is about an important moment for Puerto Ricans in American culture, not about Ricky Martin as an individual. Yet, one thing is for sure: This book is not for die-hard fans but for people who want to think about Latino culture.
