Die Chicanos kämpfen seit den späten 1960er Jahren um kulturelle Anerkennung und soziale Gleichberechtigung in der US-amerikanischen Gesellschaft. Ihr indigenes Erbe stellt dabei ein essentielles Element der eigenen Identität und künstlerischen Authentizität dar. Ausgehend von 27 Interviews mit Chicano-Fotografen und -Aktivisten wie Delilah Montoya, Kathy Vargas, Lupita Murillo Tinnen, Harry Gamboa Jr., Oscar Castillo, Orlando Lara, Robert C. Buitrón und David Bacon analysiert Laura M. Corkovic, wie effizient sie das Internet für ihren Kampf nutzen. In vier konkreten Fallstudien arbeitet sie die Bedeutung der indigenen Kulturen in der zeitgenössischen Chicano-Fotografie sowie ihre Online-Präsentation im Vergleich zu den Printmedien heraus.

Identity and Struggle at the Margins of the Nation-State brings together new research on the social history of Central America and the Spanish-speaking Caribbean during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Aviva Chomsky and Aldo A. Lauria Santiago have gathered both well-known and emerging scholars to demonstrate how the actions and ideas of rural workers, peasants, migrants, and women formed an integral part of the growth of the export economies of the era and to examine the underacknowledged impact such groups had on the shaping of national histories. Responding to the fact that the more common, elite-centred "national" histories distort or erase the importance of gender, race, ethnicity, popular consciousness, and identity, contributors to this volume correct this imbalance by moving these previously overlooked issues to the centre of historical research and analysis. In so doing, they describe how these marginalised working peoples of the Hispanic Caribbean Basin managed to remain centred on not only class-based issues but on a sense of community, a desire for dignity, and a struggle for access to resources. Individual essays include discussions of plantation justice in Guatemala, highland Indians in Nicaragua, the effects of foreign corporations in Costa Rica, coffee production in El Salvador, banana workers in Honduras, sexuality and working-class feminism in Puerto Rico, the Cuban sugar industry, agrarian reform in the Dominican Republic, and finally, potential directions for future research and historiography on Central America and the Caribbean. This collection will have a wide audience among Caribbeanists and Central Americanists, as well as students of gender studies, and labour, social, Latin American, and agrarian history.

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy issued Executive Order 10925, requiring federal contractors to take "affirmative action" to employ workers on a nondiscriminatory basis. Since then, perhaps no issue in the modern American dialogue engenders such vociferous debate and controversy. This two-volume set contains more than 500 alphabetically arranged entries that offer current, accurate, and detailed information significantly related to affirmative action. Entries also explore implementation of the concept in other countries, including Japan, Australia, India, South Africa, and Great Britain. Two appendices provide the full texts of Gratz v. Bollinger and Grutter v. Bollinger, the landmark affirmative action decisions handed down by the Supreme Court in June 2003. A timeline of major events traces the development of affirmative action in the United States from 1865 to the present, a bibliography lists important general works, and a "Guide to Related Topics" allows readers to trace such broad themes as affirmative action and civil rights, or such important information categories as major statutes and court cases, across a range of entries. Illustrated and cross-referenced, the entries conclude with specialized further reading lists and can be accessed through a detailed subject index. Book jacket.

The field of critical race theory has gotten increasingly more attention as an emerging perspective on race, the law, and policy. Critical race theory examines the social construction of the law, administrative policy, electoral politics, and political discourse in the U.S. Race Is … Race Isn’t presents a group of qualitative research studies, literature reviews, and commentaries that collectively articulate critical race theory in secondary and post-secondary educational settings. The editors explore links and conflicts with other areas of difference, including language, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation, with the goal of opening a dialogue about how critical race theory can be incorporated into education research methodologies.
