“By placing Latinos at the forefront of contemporary urban planning this groundbreaking collection confronts the historical marginalization of Latinos in urban planning making evidently clear that critical Latino studies has much to offer to current debates around sustainable development, planning and urban studies and that Latino studies’ theoretical and conceptual insights must be central to any consideration of the future of American cities.”
—Arlene Davila, author of Culture Works: Space, Value, and Mobility Across the Neoliberal Americas
“This vital collection of essays is a manifesto for the Latino/a ciudadano—or citizen—and should catalyze a much-needed conversation among elected officials, urban planners, activists and scholars. With subtle theoretical insights and practical research from leaders in ethnic studies, architecture, urban planning, environmental studies, sociology and political science, this sweet fruit of interdisciplinary Latino/a studies speaks to the most pressing policy dilemmas of our time, including migration, housing and environmental injustice. Torres and Diaz’s volume shows how a long history of Latino urbanism has made and will make the city—the dwelling place of the world’s majority—more liveable for all.”
—Laura Lomas, author of Translating Empire: Jose Marti, Migrant Latino Subjects, and American Modernities
