Reviews

"A multifaceted assessment of Latinos/as in contemporary popular culture. By deeply interrogating representations that others have dismissed as trivial, the book's dynamic range of approaches offers vital new ways of seeing Latinos/as. It's beautifully composed and richly nuanced essays bring twenty-first century Latino-ness to life on screens big and small." - Priscilla Peña Ovalle, University of Oregon, USA, and author of Dance and the Hollywood Latina: Race, Sex and Stardom

"Aldama has done it again, assembling some of the sharpest minds around to put the spotlight on the next stage in Latino/a media and cultural studies. A treasure trove of insight and illumination, this book is guaranteed to capture the attention of students, scholars, and anyone invested in the politics of Latino/a media representations. This book is what we've all been waiting for." - Richard T. Rodríguez, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, and author of Next of Kin: The Family in Chicano/a Cultural Politics

"A timely, lively collection of essays on how Latino/as create and absorb mass media, authored by a Murderer's Row of scholars who know their Dora from their Derrida, their Sancho Panza from their Sartre." - Gustavo Arellano, syndicated columnist of ¡Ask a Mexican!

"Latinos and Narrative Media bursts through into new exploratory spaces that shine a bright new light on Latino Media Studies. Aldama and his crew welcome us in their dazzling discovery of exquisite new planetary constellations." - Ana Merino, University of Iowa, USA, and author of El comic hispánico and Chris Ware: La secuencia circular
