Latino Visions


Latino Visions

Jane Canning

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-This clearly laid out book traces the social, political, and cultural events and traditions that have shaped Latino artists and their works. Exploring cultural and religious history as well as the function of identity as expressed in art, four chapters consider in turn the art of the Southwest santeros, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, and Cuban Americans. Specific artists are singled out and highlighted in sidebars. Their work is analyzed and, when possible, the artists speak for themselves. It is in these first-person "interview" sections that the book most vividly comes to life. Most artists address the formative role of their traditional social milieu and the sense of difference from mainstream Anglo society, noting these as determinative elements in creating their unique styles. Frequent black-and-white illustrations and photographs of the artists extend the pedantic text, as do two sections of color plates. Aimed at an older audience than Harriet Rohmer's Just Like Me (Children's Book Pr., 1997), Latino Visions does much to elucidate the role of heritage in defining a worldview and an artistic response. This is certainly not pleasure reading, but it does provide a sound and comprehensive source of information on several aspects of Latino art.-Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA

Mexico's Hope: An Encounter With Politics and History

MEXICO’S HOPE: AN ENCOUNTER WITH POLITICS AND HISTORY. New York: Monthly Review Press, 1999. 435 pages; tables, notes; index; Spanish-language edition, Mexico: Siglo veintiuno editores, 2001. Some review excerpts:

May First in the Belly of the Beast

Originally published on Cubanow [May 1, 2004]

The First of May has not been celebrated in the US since the beginning of the Cold War. The people don’t even know why it is celebrated in the rest of the world, in spite of the fact that it is held in honor of the eight Chicago Martyrs of 1886. But this 1st of May there will be protests because it is the first anniversary of the “victory” in the war against Iraq.

Cockcroft Quotes

“Several foreigners accused of bombing the World Trade Center and plotting other terrorist acts in New York City in 1993 were admitted into the country at CIA request."
