Reviews

"This is a truly groundbreaking text, not only 'breaching' the borders of North and South but also seamlessly navigating the terrains of American, Latino, Native American/Indigenous, Ethic, Qualitative, and Gender and Women's Studies. Jaramillo weaves a critical, insightful analysis with beautifully written narrative, creating a new genre of scholarship that not only contests the dictates of colonialist consciousness but also its forms. Given the ascendency of the colonial present, this book is an absolute must read for students and scholars across disciplines. This book inspires me as a scholar, activist and educator to keep struggling for the decolonial imaginary and all its possibilities." Sandy Grande, Chair of Education Department, Associate Professor of Education, Connecticut College

"I love this book! Drawing on her close engagement with the activist work of immigrant mothers in South Central L.A., Jaramillo brilliantly blends theory with praxis and develops an innovative approach to revolutionary social drama as multi-layered pragmatic transformation. This book represents an important development in Anzaldúan studies, holistic-critical pedagogies, and decolonial theories." AnaLouise Keating, Professor of Women's Studies, Texas Woman's University

"Immigration and the Challenge of Education addresses one of the most pressing educational challenges that the United States faces in the twenty-first century: The education of an ever-increasing immigrant student population under siege. The brilliance of Jaramillo's book lies in her powerful analysis of the historical roots that cut across borders and are linked by exploitative imperialistic economic and cultural policies that guide and shape the asymmetrical relationship between North and South. This book goes beyond the usual documentation of the discrimination faced by Latina mothers. It provides a compassionate portrayal of the emergence of submerged voices and the multiple processes involved in the empowerment of Latina mothers and the varied degrees to which they come to voice as narrated by their own stories." Donaldo Macedo, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education, University of Massachusetts Boston
