This text tells the story of Latino cultures in the US and integrates that story into the larger framework of United States cultural history. Avoiding a chronological approach, it offers a dynamic and integrated way to look at Latino cultures which allows readers to draw comparisons with mainstream culture and with their own personal experiences. The book includes an introduction and a timeline reviewing the history of Latinos in the United States as well as a glossary of Spanish terms.


  • Latinos, past and present - introduction

This unique anthology highlights the diversity of Latino cultural expressions and points out the distinctive features of the three major Latino populations: Mexican, Puerto Rican and Cuban. It is organized around six central cultural issues: family, religion, community, the arts, (im)migration and exile, and cultural identity. Each chapter focuses on a particular theme by presenting readings from a variety of genres, including short stories, poems, essays, excerpts from novels, a play, photographs, even a few songs and recipes.
