Aztlan: Essays on the Chicano Homeland

Aztlan: Essays on the Chicano Homeland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"...As a symbol for political action, a place of spiritual plentitude, or as a challenge to transcend ethnic borders, Aztlan emerges throughout these essays as one of the Chicano Movement's fundamental ideological constructs. This volume will be of interest to students and critics concerned with the understanding and comprehensive reconstruction of one of the Chicano cultural emblems of the late 1960s. Given the present emphasis in Chicano studies on discourse analysis and critique of ideologies, this volume is a contribution to Chicano cultural criticism."--Roberto Cantu, California State University

Synopsis:

"Aztlán: Essays on the Chicano Homeland gathers articles published over a period of twenty years, offering in one volume the divergent ideological interpretations engendered within Chicano studies in relation to the legendary origin of the Aztecs."--Roberto Cantu, California State University
