Through ethnographic studies and interviews conducted on New York's Lower East Side and in the Bronx, this book examines the intersections of race, class and language that shape the lives of working-class Puerto Ricans. Concepts such as mixed or broken languages, and good and bad English are cultural constructions, and therefore are about more than language. In the Puerto Rican experience of devaluation and prejudice in the United States, the institutionalization of racial exclusion and class location are mapped onto English and Spanish in complex and politicized ways.
