Description:

The second edition of the Chicano Studies Readerbrings this best-selling anthology up to date with a new section, "Continuing to Push Boundaries." Five additional essays address current issues, including cross-disciplinary studies, investigations of mass media and public culture, and explorations of the intersection of race, sexuality, and citizenship. These essays correspond to the themes that organize the original set of essays: "Decolonizing the Territory," "Performing Politics," "Configuring Identities, and Remapping the World." The revised edition documents the foundation of Chicano studies, testifies to its broad disciplinary range, and explores its continuing development. The contributors are Eric Avila, Maxine Baca Zinn, Gilberto Cardenas, David Carrasco, Angie Chabram-Dernersesian, John Alba Cutler, Karen Mary Davalos, Adelaida R. Del Castillo, Shifra M. Goldman, Juan Gomez-Qui-ones, Deena J. Gonzalez, Ramon A. Guti#x17D;rrez, Jorge A. Huerta, Jessica E. Jones, Chon A. Noriega, Am#x17D;rico Paredes, Fernando Peoalosa, Rafael Perez-Torres, Beatriz M. Pesquera, David Roman, Robert Chao Romero, Rosaura Sanchez, Chela Sandoval, Alex M. Saragoza, Denise A. Segura, Marian E. Schlotterbeck, Adaljiza Sosa-Riddell, Kay Turner, and Steven S. Volk. "This volume should be required reading for any undergraduate or graduate course in ethnic studies." -George Sanchez, president of the American Studies Association "A landmark collection on the state of Chicano studies." -Alberto Lopez Pulido, University of San Diego, in American Quarterly
