Based on a three-year ethnographic study of a class on the sociology of Latino/a society, this book tells the story of how the students navigated academic life in a predominantly white university to construct their own education. Padilla weaves together journal entries, his own experiences in education, cultural analysis, and theory to create a rich narrative.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this critical reflection on the current state of American higher education, Felix Padilla offers hope for students who have too long been excluded from the traditional discourse. It is essential reading for any of us in higher education who are willing to run the risks of truly hearing the voices of today's wonderfully diverse students."
-Jim Fraser, Northeastern University
"The sensitivity shown by Professor Felix M. Padilla to Andres and to the diversity of student populations is precisely what is needed in the academy. A close reading of his text enables educators to learn what it means to be in search of a liberating educaton."
-James G. Spady, "Philadelphia New Observer
