Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Experimental, inventive, provocative and above all visionary, Gloria Anzalda's work is widely recognized among scholars of Chicano/Latino, Gay and Lesbian, Women's, Postcolonial, Ethnic and Cultural Studies as a foundational elaboration of the politics and poetics of cultural hybridity. Both Borderlands/La Fronteraand Making Face/Making Soul: Haciendo Carasare all about understanding the complex and competing social, political and cultural forces that shape-sometimes quite brutally-the experiences of women of color in the U.S., and they are all about taking that understanding and mobilizing it toward creative and revisionary efforts for making social change.

"One of the 100 Best Books of the Twentieth Century"-Hungry Mind Review(Spring 1999)

"Anzalda's voyage of discovery, focused on the border and the new mestiza, is a preparation for the future. The border is a bundle of contradictions and ambiguities... This hybrid crossroads is just the right kind of training ground. It is fertile area for mutations and transformations. In Borderlands/ La Frontera, Gloria Anzalda is our guide with an all-encompassing vision to charge the border with meaning."-The Americas Review

"[She] explores in prose and poetry the murky, precarious existence of those living on the frontier between cultures and languages. . . .she meditates on the conditions of Chicanos in Anglo culture, women in Hispanic culture, and lesbians in the straight world. ...a powerful document."-Library Journal

A "Best of 1987" Library Journalselection.

"Anzalda's vision encompasses spiritual and experiential aspects of female power, as well as the day-to-day courage and struggle that has characterized Chicano survival."-The San Francisco Chronicle

Synopsis:

First published in 1987, "Borderlands" has become a classic in Chicano border studies, feminist theory, gay and lesbian studies, and cultural studies.

Synopsis:

Cultural Writing. Chicana Studies. Women's Studies. The actual physical borderland that I'm dealing with in this book is the Texas-U.S., Southwest/ Mexican border. The psychological borderlands, the sexual borderlands, and spiritual borderlands are not particular to the Southwest. In fact the Borderlands are physically present wherever two or more cultures edge each other, where people of different races occupy the same territory, where under, lower, middle and upper classes touch, where the space between two individuals shrinks with intimacy — Gloria Anazaldua. Second Edition, with a new introduction by Sonia Saldivar-Hull, author of FEMINISM ON THE BORDER, and an in-depth interview with Gloria Anzaldua. An essential book.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [247]-251).

Anzaldua combines poetry, cultural criticsm, and history to describe the borderlands of those who live between Mexico and the defined "U.S." The concept of the borderlands that devide race, language, gender, and sexual orientation is amazingly woven together and provides an historic and artistic look at culture on the physical and spiritual spaces that devide us.
