About this product
- DescriptionIn the last forty-five years, immigration reform has brought tens of millions of new immigrants from Latin American countries to the United States. Since critical race theory pioneers Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic compiled the first edition of The Lati/a Condition in 1998, the population has continued to grow exponentially, while scholarship on Latis/as has grown just as quickly. The second edition of The Lati/a Condition brings together a wide range of new and classic Lati and Latina voices from the fields of law, sociology, history, media studies, and politics to address questions such as: Who exactly is a Lati? Who is Hispanic? Who is Chica? How did Spanish-speaking people come to live in the United States? Is the Lati family a source of strength or oppression? What about Catholicism? Should the United States try to control Lati immigration, and is this even possible? What are the most common media stereotypes of Lati people? Are Latis white? What role does law play in the racial construction of the group? Collecting a wealth of perspectives on these and other issues central to the Lati/a experience, Delgado and Stefancic offer a broad portrait of Lati/a life in the United States at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
