Latino/a Thought: Culture, Politics, and Society
About the Author:
Francisco H. Vázquez is a professor of history and philosophy and director of the Hutchins Center for Interdisciplinary Learning at Sonoma State University, California. Among his publications are: "Philosophy in Mexico : The Opium of the Intellectuals or a Prophetic Insight," (Canadian Journal of Political and Social Theory, Vol. 4, No. 3, 1980) and "Chicanology: A Postmodern Analysis of Meshicano Discource," (Perspectives in Mexican American Studies, Volume 3, 1992).About the Book:
No other book offers readers such a rich history of the Latino heritage--experienced in this book in the voices and political actions whose influence reached across generations. This historical anthology is unique in its presentation of cross cultural writings--especially from Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Cuban writers and political documents--that shape the ideology and experience of U.S. Latinos. The writings touch on many themes, but are guided by this book's concern for a quest for public citizenship among all Latino populations and a better understanding of racialized populations in the U.S. today.
