I recommend this book to all Latin men and women and to those interested in liberation theology. Although written over 10 yrs ago, the problems Isasi-Diaz spells out still hold true today. As an educated Latina, she helped me see how sometimes my own culture keeps me from reaching my God-given potential. She also deals with the social structures that are in place in our society that contribute to Latinas remaining locked in low paying jobs and in poverty.

An excellent book. I am waiting eagerly for her next book on the topic.

Format: Paperback
Ada María Isasi-Díaz (born 1943) is professor of ethics and theology at Drew University, as well as the founder and co-director of the Hispanic Institute of Theology. She is also the developer of "Mujerista theology." ("Mujer" is Spanish for "woman." It is thus related to Alice Walker's concept of "womanism".) She has also written Mujerista Theology: A Theology for the Twenty-First Century, Hispanic/Latino Theology (Biblical Reflections on Ministry), La Lucha Continues: Mujerista Theology, etc.

She wrote in the Introduction to this 1993 book, "This book pushes further and deeper the ideas and methods presented in ('Hispanic Women')... it is a platform for the voices of Latinas because their lived-experience is the source of mujerista theology." She defines mujerista as "a Hispanic Woman who struggles to liberate herself not as an individual but as a member of a Hispanic community." (Pg. 4)

She suggests that effective solidarity with Latinas demands "a preferential option for the oppressed." (Pg. 42) She notes that the Christianity which became an intrinsic part of the Latina culture "uses the Bible in a very limited way, emphasizing instead the traditions and customs of the Spanish church." (Pg. 46)

She asserts that as mujerista theologians they claim that even the attempt to be objective is flawed; "our theological enterprise has to do with the reality Hispanic Women create and confront every day...

Format: Hardcover
Despite the title, race does not figure in the author's experiences. Then-Lieutenant Rishell and his men were far too busy trying to fend off hordes of North Korean and Chinese troops in a wildly inhospitable climate to sweat any such small stuff.
Their story, with Colonel Rishell's thoughtful annotations to his original fragmentary notes, is basically the record of an infantry platoon fighting for their lives - hungry, cold, tired, and afraid, one and all. They were, in Rishell's first-hand opinion, no better and no worse than other units, which means they were pretty damned good, considering how green and poorly equipped they were.
Rishell's memoir is a valuable addition to the record of the Korean War. No map is provided, an odd omission in a war so dominated by topography.
