Insult to Injury: Violence in Spanish, Hispanic American and Latino Art & Literature

Debra Andrist

Insult to Injury: Violence in Spanish, Hispanic American and Latino Art & Literature by Debra AndristThe stark reality of all life, from the biology of the food chain incorporating all living beings to the social stratification and hierarchies of human cultures, revolves around violence - physical or psychological. That unavoidable, black-and-white, worldview of survival of the fittest with little if any gray to mitigate it is colored only by the red lifeblood of the victims of the bigger, the stronger, the smarter, the wilier, who literally and/or figuratively "eat" their victims - overcoming, overwhelming, controlling, oppressing them. The premise behind Insult to Injury: Violence in Spanish,...

Whiteness on the Border: Mapping the US Racial Imagination in Brown and White

Lee Bebout

Whiteness on the Border: Mapping the US Racial Imagination in Brown and White by Lee BeboutHistorically, ideas of whiteness and Americanness have been built on the backs of racialized communities. The legacy of anti-Mexican stereotypes stretches back to the early nineteenth century when Anglo-American settlers first came into regular contact with Mexico and Mexicans. The images of the Mexican Other as lawless, exotic, or non-industrious continue to circulate today within US popular and political culture. Through keen analysis of music, film, literature, and US politics, Whiteness on the Border demonstrates how contemporary representations of Mexicans and Chicano/as are pushed further...

Southwest Asia: The Transpacific Geographies of Chicana/o Literature

Jayson Gonzales Sae-Saue

Southwest Asia: The Transpacific Geographies of Chicana/o Literature by Jayson Gonzales Sae-SaueSouthwest Asia investigates why key Chicana/o writers, from the 1950s to the present day, have persistently referenced Asian people and places in the course of articulating their political ideas. Raising concerns about how these texts invariably marginalize their Asian characters and suggesting that darker legacies of imperialism and exclusion might lurk beneath their utopian visions of a Chicana/o nation, Jayson Gonzales Sae-Saue takes our conception of Chicana/o literature as a transnational movement in a new direction.

Chicano Satire: A Study in Literary Culture

Guillermo Hernandez

Chicano Satire: A Study in Literary Culture by Guillermo HernandezGeographically close to Mexico, but surrounded by Anglo-American culture in the United States, Chicanos experience many cultural tensions and contradictions. Their lifeways are no longer identical with Mexican norms, nor are they fully assimilated to Anglo-American patterns. Coping with these tensions-knowing how much to let go of, how much to keep-is a common concern of Chicano writers, who frequently use satire as a means of testing norms and deviations from acceptable community standards. In this groundbreaking study, Guillermo Hernández focuses on the uses of satire in the works of three...

Wild Tongues: Transnational Mexican Popular Culture

Rita E. Urquijo-Ruiz

Wild Tongues: Transnational Mexican Popular Culture by Rita E. Urquijo-RuizTracing the configuration of the slapstick, destitute Peladita/Peladito and the Pachuca/Pachuco (depicted in flashy zoot suits) from 1928 to 2004, Wild Tongues is an ambitious, extensive examination of social order in Mexican and Chicana/o cultural productions in literature, theater, film, music, and performance art. From the use of the Peladita and the Peladito as stock characters who criticized various aspects of the Mexican government in the 1920s and 1930s to contemporary performance art by María Elena Gaitán and Dan Guerrero, which yields a feminist and queer-studies interpretation, Rita...

The Literatures of the U.S.-Mexican War: Narrative, Time, and Identity

Jaime Javier Rodr?guez

The Literatures of the U.S.-Mexican War: Narrative, Time, and Identity by Jaime Javier Rodr?guezThe literary archive of the U.S.-Mexican War (1846-1848) opens to view the conflicts and relationships across one of the most contested borders in the Americas. Most studies of this literature focus on the war's nineteenth-century moment of national expansion. In The Literatures of the U.S.-Mexican War, Jaime Javier Rodríguez brings the discussion forward to our own moment by charting a new path into the legacies of a military conflict embedded in the cultural cores of both nations.

Rodríguez's groundbreaking study moves beyond the terms of Manifest Destiny to ask a fundamental question: How...

raúlrsalinas and the Jail Machine: My Weapon Is My Pen by Raúl SalinasRaúl R. Salinas is regarded as one of today's most important Chicano poets and human rights activists, but his passage to this place of distinction took him through four of the most brutal prisons in the country. His singular journey from individual alienation to rage to political resistance reflected the social movements occurring inside and outside of prison, making his story both personal and universal. This groundbreaking collection of Salinas' journalism and personal correspondence from his years of incarceration and following his release provides a unique perspective into his spiritual,...

Americo Paredes: Culture and Critique

Americo Paredes: Culture and Critique by José E. LimónSeveral biographies of Américo Paredes have been published over the last decade, yet they generally overlook the paradoxical nature of his life's work. Embarking on an in-depth, critical exploration of the significant body of work produced by Paredes, José E. Limón (one of Paredes's students and now himself one of the world's leading scholars in Mexican American studies) puts the spotlight on Paredes as a scholar/citizen who bridged multiple arenas of Mexican American cultural life during a time of intense social change and cultural renaissance. Serving as a counterpoint to hagiographic...

Gente Decente: A Borderlands Response to the Rhetoric of Dominance

Leticia Magda Garza-Falcon

Gente Decente: A Borderlands Response to the Rhetoric of Dominance by Leticia Magda Garza-FalconIn his books The Great Plains, The Great Frontier, and The Texas Rangers, historian Walter Prescott Webb created an enduring image of fearless, white, Anglo male settlers and lawmen bringing civilization to an American Southwest plagued with "savage" Indians and Mexicans. So popular was Webb's vision that it influenced generations of historians and artists in all media and effectively silenced the counter-narratives that Mexican American writers and historians were concurrently producing to claim their standing as "gente decente," people of worth.

These counter-narratives form the subject of...

Chicano Authors: Inquiry by Interview

Chicano Authors: Inquiry by Interview by Bruce-NovoaThe need for this book became apparent to Bruce-Novoa when he first taught a Chicano culture course in 1970. His students could find no source to satisfy their curiosity about Chicano writers' backgrounds, opinions, and attitudes. Chicano Authors: Inquiry by Interview provides that information. Fourteen leading Chicano authors respond to questions about their personal and educational backgrounds, their perception of the role of the Chicano writer, and their evaluation of the literary, linguistic, and sociocultural significance of Chicano literature.

Migrant Song: Politics and Process in Contemporary Chicano Literature

Teresa McKenna

Migrant Song: Politics and Process in Contemporary Chicano Literature by Teresa McKennaMigration and continuity have shaped both the Chicano people and their oral and written literature. In this pathfinding study of Chicano literature, Teresa McKenna specifically explores how these works arise out of social, political, and psychological conflict and how the development of Chicano literature is inextricably embedded in this fact. McKenna begins by appraising the evolution of Chicano literature from oral forms-including the important role of the corrido in the development of Chicano poetry. In subsequent chapters she examines the works of Richard Rodriguez and Rolando Hinojosa....

Hispanic Immigrant Literature: El Sueno del Retorno

Nicolas Kanellos

Hispanic Immigrant Literature: El Sueno del Retorno by Nicolas KanellosImmigration has been one of the basic realities of life for Latino communities in the United States since the nineteenth century. It is one of the most important themes in Hispanic literature, and it has given rise to a specific type of literature while also defining what it means to be Hispanic in the United States. Immigrant literature uses predominantly the language of the homeland; it serves a population united by that language, irrespective of national origin; and it solidifies and furthers national identity. The literature of immigration reflects the reasons for emigrating, records-both...
