The present volume brings together an outstanding series of contributions that through a variety of theoretical frameworks and analytical methods examine relevant aspects dealing with Chicano literature and culture.
By incorporating theoretical contributions and detailed close readings, the different chapters cover significant issues within the field of Chicano Studies, such as Chicano identity, which will be explored on its reliance on concepts like self-determination, resistance, ethnic identity, cultural maintenance and preservation of historical legacy, the construction of femininity in Chicano culture, or the concepts of border and mestizaje.
Given its markedly interdisciplinary approach, the book should be of interest to not only the growing number of students, scholars and professionals interested in Chicano Studies, but also to those who are interested in contemporary issues and contemporary life alike.
