Review

"A valuable and highly informative discussion of the theoretical questions that underlie the production of popular culture in the twenty-first century."

-Latin American Research Review

"The authors of these essays explore the theme of Latino/a identity by presenting popular media images of Latino/as and by examining the issues of representation that these images raise...instructive and useful."

Format: Paperback
This book answers a lot of questions about the Latino culture, experience, past, present and future. Some essays tell stories, while others are plain facts. This book has about 670 pages, yet it is a fast and informative read where you can't put the book down. It is organized by section of topic and gives suggested reading lists at the end of each chapter. A good introductory to Latin American studies, historically, culturally, and sociologically. It gives a lot of information for the price, you will not regret buying this book.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Michael McGillicuddy on May 31, 2001
Format: Paperback
Excellent book, but know in advance that this book is heavily skewed toward legal topics and lawyer authors. While much of the legal writing is dense for lay readers, it is often well worth the effort. The selections authored by Margaret Montoya, Kevin Johnson, editor Richard Delgado, and non-attorney Gloria Anzaldua were the very best of this remarkably well-written anthology.
