Who are Latinos?What’s the difference between Hispanic and Latino – or indeed Latina, Latina/o, Latin@, Latinx? Beyond the political rhetoric and popular culture representations, how can we explore what it means to be part of the largest minority group in the United States?

This compelling book acts as an illuminating primer introducing the multidisciplinary field of Latina/o Studies.Bringing together insights from a wide variety of communities, the book covers topics such as the history of Latinos in the United States, gender and sexuality, popular culture, immigration patterns, and social movements. Mize traces the origins of the field from the history of Latin American revolutionary thought, through the Chicano and Puerto Rican movements, and key disruptions from Latina feminisms, queer studies, and critical race theory, right up to the latest developments and interventions.

Combining analysis and advocacy,Latina/o Studiesis an accessible yet theoretically sophisticated introduction to the communities charting the future of the United States of America and the Américas writ large.
