9780847699407: Latino/a Thought: Culture, Politics, and Society

Latino/a Thought brings together the most important writings that shape Latino consciousness, culture, and activism today. This historical anthology is unique in its presentation of cross cultural writings--especially from Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Cuban writers and political documents--that shape the ideology and experience of U.S. Latinos. Students can read, first hand, the works or authors who most shaped their cultural heritage. They are guided by vivid introductions that set each article or document in its historical context and describe its relevance today. The writings touch on many themes, but are guided by this book's concern for a quest for public citizenship among all Latino populations and a better understanding of racialized populations in the U.S. today. No other book offers readers such a rich history of the Latino heritage--experienced in this book in the voices and political actions whose influence reached across generations.

Review:

This new and innovative reader should be required reading for all Introduction to Latino Studies university classes. (Hispanic Outlook)

An excellent compilation of the most prominent literature in the field, organized in a manner that makes the text tremendously useful to students, professors, and researchers. (Darder, Antonia)

The 21st century promises to be the Latino century. Vazquez and Torres have taken an excellent initiative. Latino/a Thought is an urgently needed collection, the most important and complete volume on the topic. (Ramón Grosfoguel)

Latino/a Thought is thought-provoking. (Press Democrat)

A most vital and important collection of contemporary social and political theory on Latino/a life in U.S. society, connecting it to historical political conditions in Latin America. This volume captures the essential ideas and practices of America's largest minority population. It's a wake-up call to a society which defines itself in multicultural terms, but yet lacks awareness and understanding of some of its most essential multicultural components. (Felix M. Padilla)

Understanding Latinos requires understanding their history of resistance. Latino/a Thought provides an important glimpse into that history. By whetting the appetite of its readers, this book will encourage additional interest and research into the long history and contemporary manifestations of political resistance. (Teresa Cordova)
