Oscar "Zeta" Acosta: The Uncollected Works gathers unpublished stories, essays, letters, poems and a teleplay written by Acosta (1935-1974), the legendary Chicano attorney, political activist and writer. All of these works were written between the early 1960s and shortly before his mysterious disappearance in Mazatlan, Mexico, in 1974. Through these writings Acosta reveals a variety of personae: a leader troubled by issues of ethnic, linguistic and cultural identity, a man who saw himself as a Robin Hood of Mexican Americans, an unstable yet genial wanderer who joined Hunter S. Thompson in a search for the American Dream. Acosta realized that democracy is about speaking out, about feeling uncomfortable, about defining others and oneself through the prism of race and history. With the publication of Oscar "Zeta" Acosta: The Uncollected Works, the complete picture of a crucial player in the Chicano Movement - described by others as "our Thomas Aquinas" and by himself as "the Brown Buffalo" - finally emerges.

Shortly after the 1923 publication of his Cane, a collage of poems, short stories, and sketches that depict the life of black Americans in both the rural South and the urban North, Toomer became a follower of spiritual leader Georges Gurdjieff. His published writing centered on those teachings for the next 20 years, until he became a Quaker in 1940, and published articles in that vein until 1950. Here are 45 poems and stories that have not appeared in previous collections, arranged in chronological sections from 1922 to 1950. Griffin (U. of South Carolina) provides a brief biographical sketch, but neither index nor bibliography. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).

Jean Baudrillard is generally recognized as one of the most important and provocative contemporary social theorists. But in the English speaking world, his reputation is largely based on books published after the 1960s, as he moved towards becoming the premier commentator on postmodernism. This wide ranging and expertly edited book examines the work of the young Baudrillard, it deepens our understanding of his seminal work on consumer culture by presenting his early essays on McLuhan, Lefebvre and Marcuse. The influence of German traditions of thought are clearly revealed, and Baudrillard's neglected and out of print writing on aesthetics is rediscovered and reprinted. Extracts from his political diaries and commentaries o

Rascuache Lawyer

Alfredo MirandŽ, a sociology professor, Stanford Law graduate, and part-time pro bono attorney, represents clients who are rascuacheÑa Spanish word for ÒpoorÓ or even ÒwretchedÓÑand on the margins of society. For MirandŽ, however, rascuache means to be Òdown but not out,Ó an underdog who is still holding its ground. Rascuache Lawyer offers a unique perspective on providing legal services to poor, usually minority, folks who are often just one short step from jail. Not only a passionate argument for rascuache lawyering, it is also a thoughtful, practical attempt to apply and test critical race theoryÑparticularly Latino critical race theoryÑin day-to-day legal practice. Every chapter presents an actual case from MirandŽÕs experience (only the names and places have been changed). His clients have been charged with everything from carrying a concealed weapon, indecent exposure, and trespassing to attempted murder, domestic violence, and child abuse. Among them are recent Mexican immigrants, drug addicts, gang members, and the homeless. All of them are destitute, and many are victims of racial profiling. Some ÒpayÓ MirandŽ with bartered services such as painting, home repairs, or mechanical work on his car. And MirandŽ doesnÕt always win their cases. But, as he recounts, he certainly works tirelessly to pursue all legal remedies. Each case is presented as a letter to a fascinating (fictional) ÒSuper ChicanaÓ named Fermina Gabriel, who we are told is an accomplished lawyer, author, and singer. This narrative device allows the author to present his cases as if he were recounting them to a friend, drawing in the reader as a friend as well. Bookending the individual cases, MirandŽÕs introductions and conclusions offer a compelling vision of progressive legal practice grounded in rascuache lawyering.

Passing In The Works Of Charles W Chesnutt

Passing in the Works of Charles W. Chesnutt is a collection that reevaluates Chesnutt's deft manipulation of the "passing" theme to expand understanding of the author's fiction and nonfiction. Nine contributors apply a variety of theories---including intertextual, signifying/discourse analysis, narratological, formal, psychoanalytical, new historical, reader response, and performative frameworks---to add richness to readings of Chesnutt's works. Together the essays provide convincing evidence that "passing" is an intricate, essential part of Chesnutt's writing, and that it appears in all the genres he wielded: journal entries, speeches, essays, and short and long fiction. The essays engage with each other to display the continuum in Chesnutt's thinking as he began his writing career and established his sense of social activism, as evidenced in his early journal entries. Collectively, the essays follow Chesnutt's works as he proceeded through the Jim Crow era, honing his ability to manipulate his mostly white audience through the astute, though apparently self-effacing, narrator, Uncle Julius, of his popular conjure tales. Chesnutt's ability to subvert audience expectations is equally noticeable in the subtle irony of his short stories. Several of the collection's essays address Chesnutt's novels, including Paul Marchand, F.M.C., Mandy Oxendine, The House Behind the Cedars, and Evelyn's Husband. The volume opens up new paths of inquiry into a major African American writer's oeuvre.
