In the past few decades, a huge wave of immigration has turned New York into a microcosm of the Americas and enhanced its historical role as the crossroads of the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds. Yet far from being an alien subculture within a "mainstream" and supposedly pure "Anglo" America, people referred to as Hispanics or Latinos have been part and parcel of New York since the beginning of the city's history. They represent what Walt Whitman once defined as "the Spanish element of our nationality."Hispanic New York: A Sourcebook 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 not easily accessible to the general public, Claudio Iván Remeseira makes a compelling case for New York as a paradigm of the country's Latinoization. His anthology mixes primary sources with scholarly and journalistic essays covering history, demography, studies on race and ethnicity, music, art history, literature, linguistics, and religion, and the authors range from historical figures, such as José Martí, Bernardo Vega, or Whitman himself, to Paul Berman, Ed Morales, Virginia Sánchez Korrol, Roberto Suro, Ana Celia Zentella, and other contemporary writers. This unique volume treats the reader to both the New York and the American experience, as reflected and transformed by its Hispanic and Latino component.
