9780742563551: 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.

About the Author:

Francisco H. Vázquez is professor of history and philosophy and director of the Hutchins Institute for Public Policy Studies and Community Action at Sonoma State University, California. Among his publications are: 'Philosophy in Mexico: The Opium of the Intellectuals or a Prophetic Insight,' (Canadian Journal of Political and Social Theory, Vol. 4, No. 3 , 1980) and 'Chicanology: A Postmodern Analysis of Meshicano Discourse,' (Perspectives in Mexican Amercian Studies, Volume 3, 1992).

Review:

With the publication of this new edition of Latino/a Thought, Vazquez has done a great service to scholars, the Latino community, and the general public. Framed within the global and transnational context and the history of Latino struggles for social justice and political empowerment, this is simply the best, most comprehensive, collection of essays available on the Latinos/as in the United States. Readers will find here a wide range of documents and analyses of critical historical, socioeconomic, political, and cultural concern. It is an ideal primer for the classroom or simply for all those seeking a well-rounded overview of the historical and contemporary Latino/a reality. (William I. Robinson, University of California, Santa Barbara; author of Latin America and Global Capitalism)
