Synopses & Reviews
Borderlands/La Frontera has become a classic in Chicano border studies, feminist theory, gay and lesbian studies, and cultural studies. The new critical introduction by Sonia Saldivar-Hull provides an overview of the important contributions Borderlands has made to discussions of race, gender, class, and sexuality, while Anzaldua's own reflections reveal her new theoretical paths since Borderlands was first published in 1987.
.".. Anzaldua moves with grace and erudition through a sprawling landscape, nothing less than a history of the people of the Southwest, a survey of both sides of the border, a critique of Western patriarchal civilization, and a manifesto of true counterculture: the non-dominants, the Third World, women, queers, outsiders."
Second edition of Gloria Anzaldúa's major work, with a new critical introduction by Chicano Studies scholar and new reflections by Anzaldúa.
