About this product
- DescriptionOver the past few decades, a wave of immigration has turned New York into a microcosm of the Americas and enhanced its role as the crossroads of the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds. Yet far from being an alien group within a mainstream and supposedly pure Anglo America, people referred to as Hispanics or Latis have been part and parcel of New York since the beginning of the city's history. They represent what Walt Whitman once celebrated as the Spanish element of our nationality. Hispanic New York is the first anthology to offer a comprehensive view of this multifaceted heritage. Combining familiar materials with other selections that are either out of print or t easily accessible, Claudio Iv n Remeseira makes a compelling case for New York as a paradigm of the country's Latiization. His anthology mixes primary sources with scholarly and journalistic essays on history, demography, racial and ethnic studies, music, art history, literature, linguistics, and religion, and the authors range from historical figures, such as Jos Mart , Bernardo Vega, or Whitman himself, to contemporary writers, such as Paul Berman, Ed Morales, Virginia S nchez Korrol, Roberto Suro, and Ana Celia Zentella. This unique volume treats the reader to both the New York and the American experience, as reflected and transformed by its Hispanic and Lati components.
