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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A veritable everything-but-the-kitchen-sink compendium of modern Latino prose and speech, this volume gives voice to the underappreciated work and art of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans and Mexican-Americans."
-"Publishers Weekly
""Barrios and Borderlands: Cultures of Latinos and Latinas in the United States by Denis Lynn Daly Heyck, is, in a nutshell, just plain fun reading...Heyck has made an important contribution to the understanding from without and self-reflection from within of the Latino community. As a latino myself I felt enriched by "Barrios and Borderlands. I can imagine non-Latinos coming away from this book ....feeling kindred in spirit in this adventure called "America" - at least I hope they do."
-Raul Nino, "Hungry Mind Review
..."The work is balanced with contributions from many groups and contains a statistical appendix about Latins in the United States....Since Latins are moving everywhere-though sometimes they are not visible, they are there-this book belongs in every library."
-Rene Perez-Lopez,
ibrary Journal
