Summary 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, firsthand, the works or authors who most shaped their cultural heritage. They are guided by 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.--From publisher description
