NAMED A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2018 BY Buzzfeed - The Wall Street Journal - The Millions - Southern Living - Bustle - Esquire - Entertainment Weekly - Nylon - Mashable "Cassaras's propulsive and profound first novel, finding one's home in the world-particularly in a subculture plagued by fear and intolerance from society-comes with tragedy as well as extraordinary personal freedom." -- Esquire A gritty and gorgeous debut that follows a cast of gay and transgender club kids navigating the Harlem ball scene of the 1980s and '90s, inspired by the real House of Xtravaganza made famous by the seminal documentary Paris Is Burning It's 1980 in New York City, and nowhere is the city's glamour and energy better reflected than in the burgeoning Harlem ball scene, where seventeen-year-old Angel first comes into her own. Burned by her traumatic past, Angel is new to the drag world, new to ball culture, and has a yearning inside of her to help create family for those without. When she falls in love with Hector, a beautiful young man who dreams of becoming a professional dancer, the two decide to form the House of Xtravaganza, the first-ever all-Latino house in the Harlem ball circuit. But when Hector dies of AIDS-related complications, Angel must bear the responsibility of tending to their house alone. As mother of the house, Angel recruits Venus, a whip-fast trans girl who dreams of finding a rich man to take care of her; Juanito, a quiet boy who loves fabrics and design; and Daniel, a butch queen who accidentally saves Venus's life. The Xtravaganzas must learn to navigate sex work, addiction, and persistent abuse, leaning on each other as bulwarks against a world that resists them. All are ambitious, resilient, and determined to control their own fates, even as they hurtle toward devastating consequences. Told in a voice that brims with wit, rage, tenderness, and fierce yearning, The House of Impossible Beauties is a tragic story of love, family, and the dynamism of the human spirit.

Latinos in the United States

When Latinos in the United States was first published in 1986, it was hailed as a 'triumph' by the National Catholic Reporter, 'inspiring' by the journal American Studies, and was named an Outstanding Academic Book of the Year by Choice. The book was widely adopted in Latino and ethnic studies classes at colleges and universities throughout the country. Now, in the second edition, David Abalos updates his pioneering application of the transformation theory to key aspects of Latino politics, history, and culture. He draws on examples from everyday human encounters to address specific concerns of both Latino individuals and groups. Among the issues addressed are: the need to maintain Latino family heritage while allowing each member to develop the autonomy necessary to interact both within the family and within American society; the importance of avoiding assimilation; the necessity for Latinos to develop the skills and competence that allow them to enter into America's business world without losing their commitment to the community; rediscovery of Latino religious symbols of transformation that renew the life of the sacred; and the need to preserve Latino heritage through a strategy of being both American and Latino. The second edition contains extensive new material. Abalos includes a new section on archetypal analysis. He has added discussions of the relationship between the sacred and the political in American politics, and of assimilation and its effects on the immigrant. He addresses the new wave of migration and what it means to the future of the United States and la comunidad Latina. Abalos has also added a new chapter on the politics of education, which is, he argues, the most important civil rights issue facing the Latino community. The notes and bibliography reflect recent scholarship, especially that of Latina writers and Chicana feminists.

'While the primary audience for this book appears to be the University faculty and administrators looking for a better way to engage students, the author ameliorates the proverbial 'beef' between Hip-Hop and academe by offering a student-centered model for understanding Hip-Hop in college life.'—Rob Jackson, Words, Beat, and Life: The Global Journal of Hip Hop Culture 'Petchauer draws upon hiphop as an authoritative source to demonstrate the variety of ways hiphop collegians apply it to their classroom practices and educational lives. This particular strength broadens the reading audience from university personnel and faculty to include readers interested in art, education, and hiphop studies.'—Haidee Smith Lefebvre, International Journal of Critical Pedagogy 'In Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives: Elements, Embodiment and Higher Edutainment, Petchauer presented a detailed exploration of the diverse experiences of students he referred to as hip-hop collegians. Petchauer delivered on his promise—Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives is a well-constructed lens through which to better understand a diverse group of students on college campuses and is a valuable read for anyone in higher education looking to gain further knowledge of this growing group of students. In this way, Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives is a valuable read both for professionals seeking to work with hip-hop collegians as well as anyone striving to interact with students around their passions to create more robust and engaging college environments.' —Christopher Toutain, Willamette University, Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice 'Petchauer’s book offers important insights into how hip-hop collegians experience life on and off campus, and how it influences education. His carefully constructed interviews and deep personal knowledge of hip-hop culture enable him to write a thought-provoking must-read for campus personnel directly involved with shaping how higher education influences student life and learning.'—Margaret A. Swanson, Education Review 'Hip-Hop Culture in College Students’ Lives encourages new critical thought and analysis among educators, campus personnel and researchers regarding the value of hip-hop culture in enhancing college students’ learning and development. Unveiled through an artistic approach to inquiry, a portrait is presented of how students who create hip-hop integrate its ideology, aesthetics and practices into their college lives.'— Journal of College Student Development 'Petchauer’s work not only validates the spaces created by students on all of our campuses, but should in fact challenge faculty, staff, and administrators to find new and creative ways to engage students. This is a fascinating study which should hopefully provide a more sophisticated understanding of how students make meaning on campus.' — From the foreword by Walter M. Kimbrough, Ph.D., President of Philander Smith College 'This book is a passionate, timely, and deep-rooted analysis of hip-hop culture’s value to higher education. Petchauer’s prescriptions for integrating hip-hop into pedagogical practice are practical, culturally astute, and ultimately revolutionary.' — Joseph Schloss, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Black and Latino Studies, Baruch College 'This book is an important intervention in contemporary debates on hip-hop and education. Petchauer shows us how campuses have been radically transformed through hip-hop in ways often invisible to educators and administrators alike, and he has begun a new and fruitful discussion for the field of hip-hop studies as well as education more broadly. This is a vital and necessary book.' — Greg Dimitriadis, Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy, University at Buffalo, SUNY
