The classic, best-selling book on the psychology of racism - now fully revised and updated. Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see black, white, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised edition is essential listening for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Beverly Daniel Tatum.

Pride and Prejudice gets remixed in this smart, funny, gorgeous retelling of the classic, starring all characters of color, from Ibi Zoboi, National Book Award finalist and author of American Street. Zuri Benitez has pride. Brooklyn pride, family pride, and pride in her Afro-Latino roots. But pride might not be enough to save her rapidly gentrifying neighborhood from becoming unrecognizable. When the wealthy Darcy family moves in across the street, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two teenage sons, even as her older sister, Janae, starts to fall for the charming Ainsley. She especially can’t stand the judgmental and arrogant Darius. Yet as Zuri and Darius are forced to find common ground, their initial dislike shifts into an unexpected understanding. But with four wild sisters pulling her in different directions, cute boy Warren vying for her attention, and college applications hovering on the horizon, Zuri fights to find her place in Bushwick’s changing landscape, or lose it all. In a timely update of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, critically acclaimed author Ibi Zoboi skillfully balances cultural identity, class, and gentrification against the heady magic of first love in her vibrant reimagining of this beloved classic. 1.

'Luminous... a beautiful book.&#8221; - Carolyn See For Vietnam veteran Jesse Pasadoble, now a defense attorney living in San Francisco, the battle still rages: in his memories, in the gang wars erupting on Potrero Hill, and in the recent slaying of two women: one black, one Vietnamese. While seeking justice for the young man accused of this brutal double murder, Jesse must walk with the ghosts of men who died on another hill... men who were his comrades and friends in a war that crossed racial divides. Gods Go Begging is a new classic of Latino literature, a literary detective novel that moves seamlessly between the jungles of Vietnam and the streets of modern day San Francisco. Described as 'John Steinbeck crossed with Gabriel García Márquez&#8221;, Véa weaves a powerful and cathartic story of war and peace, guilt and innocence, suffering and love - and of one man's climb toward salvation.
Los mejores libros jamás escritos. El viaje de Ulises se ha convertido en un mito universal y la Odisea en una lectura para todos los tiempos. Tras una década de guerra, una ofensa al dios Poseidón ha alejado de su reino al astuto héroe otros diez años, condenado a navegar sin rumbo y a sufrir las más diversas vicisitudes. La Odisea, que sucede a la caída de Troya, sigue los pasos de Ulises -el nombre latino de Odiseo, que esta traducción adopta- y nos acerca al relato de su largo peregrinaje para volver al hogar, Ítaca. Los mitos que configuran esta gran epopeya, la capacidad de Homero para retratar la vida en el Mediterráneo a finales del 2000 a.C. y la irrupción de un héroe deseoso de regresar a la patria han dejado huella en los grandes autores de la literatura -de Virgilio a Joyce- y han convertido la Odisea en una pieza clave de la cultura universal. La presente edición cuenta con un prólogo y la magnífica versión en verso de Fernando Gutiérrez, así como una introducción y un aparato de notas elaborado por el traductor y periodista Joan Casas, y un epílogo escrito por el poeta, ensayista y traductor José Ángel Valente. «Los mortales se atreven, ¡ay!, siempre a culpar a los dioses porque dicen que todos sus males nosotros les damos, y son ellos que, con sus locuras, se atraen infortunios que el Destino jamás decretó.» ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The epic tale of Odysseus's journey home - one of the earliest and greatest works of Western literature. If the Iliad is the world's greatest war epic, the Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of an everyman's journey through life. Odysseus' reliance on his wit and wiliness for survival in his encounters with divine and natural forces during his ten-year voyage home to Ithaca after the Trojan War is at once a timeless human story and an individual test of moral endurance.

The bandido, the harlot, the male buffoon, the female clown, the Latin lover, and the dark lady--these have been the defining, and demeaning, images of Latinos in U.S. cinema for more than a century. In this book, Charles Ramirez Berg develops an innovative theory of stereotyping that accounts for the persistence of such images in U.S. popular culture. He also explores how Latino actors and filmmakers have actively subverted and resisted such stereotyping. In the first part of the book, Berg sets forth his theory of stereotyping, defines the classic stereotypes, and investigates how actors such as Raul Julia, Rosie Perez, Jose Ferrer, Lupe Velez, and Gilbert Roland have subverted stereotypical roles. In the second part, he analyzes Hollywood's portrayal of Latinos in three genres: social problem films, John Ford westerns, and science fiction films. In the concluding section, Berg looks at Latino self-representation and anti-stereotyping in Mexican American border documentaries and in the feature films of Robert Rodriguez. He also presents an exclusive interview in which Rodriguez talks about his entire career, from Bedhead to Spy Kids, and comments on the role of a Latino filmmaker in Hollywood and how he tries to subvert the system.
