“By complicating current representations of Latino/a lives and communities, this groundbreaking work provides a more global, transnational and fluid understanding of barrios both as physical spaces and as metaphors. A smart and engaging intervention on some of the most critical questions surrounding Latinos' citizenship, sexuality, activism and cultural politics.”
—Arlene Davila, author of Latino Spin: Public Image and the Whitewashing of Race
“This interdisciplinary collection contests Latinos’ problematic hypervisibility by exploring their expressions of agency related to citizenship and nationalism, gender and sexuality, and community activism in multiple sites. The fascinating case studies illuminate how Latinas and Latinos of diverse origins negotiate complex local and transnational power relations.”
—Patricia Zavella, University of California, Santa Cruz
- "The book would be a welcome addition to undergraduate social science class that aims to engage seriously with ethnicity, difference and cultural expression in contemporary America."
—Nina Martin, Urban Studies Journal Limited
