Sorry for repeating this anecdote, but it still gets under my skin, so I gotta repeat it. I once wrote a paper and I used the phrase "Latino male" in it and the Cubana who read the paper rolled her eyes and said that's the most redundant term in the world. I have always argued that it is not. English is less gender-conscious than Spanish. If I say, "A Latino just walked down the street" in English, it could be either gender, so to be more specific, I would say "Latino male." I'm not Latino, but I will argue until my tongue falls off that there is nothing wrong with using the phrases "Latino male" or "LatinO woman" in English. I understand for Romance languages that might be another story.

Anyway, this is a well-done anthology. It is diverse in terms of issue: mental health, education, employment, crime, etc. It also doesn't treat the subject "Latino male" as a monolithic group. In toto, the anthology acknowledges youth, rainbow-flag men, the undocumented, etc. Plus, it stays on point. There's a book edited by H. Hidalgo about lesbians of color where only a few of the article were about that target group. Here, most chapters are all about Latino males; it doesn't just mention them once and then start speaking of both genders, or saying their name once and then just speaking about males of color generally, and stuff.

Still, I had problems with individual chapters. The chapter "Street Socialization and Psychosocial Moratorium" was just a bunch of psych. department babble. Talk about useless. The chapter "Latino Male Violence in the United States" said little besides, "Few statistics have been compiled on the matter." The chapter "Adolescent Mexican American Males: No Increased Risk" said that group does not have more mental problems than other groups.

Read this book.

If you live in this hemisphere, you must read this book.

Know our times and where we go.

Read this book.

I have a copy signed by Dr. Noguera, and cannot part with it, although I plan to lend it to a close Chicana friend studying Bilingual Education but I cannot let go of this book.

This book clarifies deeply the horror we yet confront in late-anglo America.

Where are our young men?

What does this highly discriminatory present hold?

At what juncture do we find ourselves?

Concentration camps and death only?

No jobs, no education, no chance, out of luck, can't raise the family, no credit, no future, no language, culture criminalized by the anglo rulers, even mere presence illegalized? Breathing a crime without papers?

Read this book.

To find the way out we must look closely at where we are, under the strong light of these brilliant scholars, educators and social scientists. We must be invisible no more.

To know where we have come from we might read such works as Zoot Suit and Other Plays, and so very much more, but to get a grip of where we are going we must study hard this present volume of excellent research essays, and chart our course by its brilliant light.

Doctor Pedro Noguera is a noted Professor of Education at New York University, and remarkable speaker. If a professional conference ever brings him to your town, do all that you can to get there, and hear the truth spoken loudly and boldly, and act.

Some of the articles are extremely informative and I learned a lot from them, but some are too mired in academic jargon.
