A Companion to Latina/o Studies is a collection of 45 original essays written by leading scholars in the Latina/o studies field. These writers explore themes spanning great depths of creative scholarship, and the essays cover everything from theories of latinismo, immigration, education, language and religion; to discussions on political and economic perspectives, and race, class, gender, and sexuality. The volume also explores broader questions encompassing history, identity, public representations, and cultural expression within the Latino community. The racialization of African and Native American heritages is examined as well. The Companion provides thoughtful insights into what is now undeniably the largest minority in the United States, and is an essential resource for all scholars in the growing field of Latina/o Studies.Flores, Juan is the author of 'Companion to Latino Studies ', published 2007 under ISBN 9781405126229 and ISBN 1405126221.
