"This book comes at a crucial time of expansion of college and university interdisciplinary programs . . .The essays focus on a variety of important and current social, cultural, and artistic issues concerning the U.S. and Latin American countries. Nationalism, transnationalism, language, hybridity, transcultural identities, and globalization, to name a few, are principal themes in the essays. The project s uniqueness is that it deals specifically with Chicano/U.S.-Latino cultures and artistic manifestations. It also brings together many outstanding established scholars and the three editors are exceptional scholars in their own right. They have selected top researchers who have already produced excellent publications. This book is a timely and very useful collection of exceptional articles that complement one another." - Alejandro Morales, Professor, Department of Chicano/Latino Studies, University of California, Irvine
