The New Latino Studies Reader
A Twenty-first-century PerspectiveBook - 2016
"The New Latino Studies Reader is designed as a contemporary, updated, multi-faceted collection of writings that bring to force the exciting, necessary scholarship of the last decades. Its aim is to introduce a new generation of students to a wide-ranging set of writing that helps them have a truer understanding of what it's like to be a Latino in the United States. With the reader, students explore the socio-historical formation of Latinos as a distinct pan-ethnic group in the United States, delving into issues of class formation; social stratification; racial, gender and sexual identities; and politics and cultural production. And while other readers now in print may discuss Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans and Central Americans as distinct groups with unique experiences, this text explores the commonalities that structure the experiences of Latinos Americans as a whole. Timely, thorough, and thought-provoking, The New Latino Studies Reader provides a genuine view of the Latino experience as a whole"-- Provided by publisher.
