Mambo Montage: The Latinization of New York City

by

Mambo Montage: The Latinization of New York City Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York is the capital of mambo and a global factory of latinidad. This book covers the topic in all its multifaceted aspects, from Jim Crow baseball in the first half of the twentieth century to hip hop and ethno-racial politics, from Latinas and labor unions to advertising and Latino culture, from Cuban cuisine to the language of signs in New York City.

Together the articles map out the main conceptions of Latino identity as well as the historical process of Latinization of New York. Mambo Montage is both a way of imagining latinidad and an angle of vision on the city.

Review:

"A brilliant political postmodernist take on the mambo. I find it essential." Robert Farris Thompson, Yale University

Synopsis:

A report on the state of Latino politics and culture in New York — the most populous and diverse Latino city in the United States.
