book cover       Latining America: Black-Brown Passages and the Coloring of Latino/a Studies by Claudia Milian (2013): University of
       Georgia Press. 

Latining America keeps company with and challenges existent models of Latinidad, demanding a distinct paradigm that puts into question what is understood as Latino and Latina today. Milian conceptually considers how underexplored "Latin" participants-the southern, the black, the dark brown, the Central American-have ushered in a new world of "Latined" signification from the 1920s to the present.

book cover      The Roots of Latino Urban Agency by Sharon A. Navarro and Rodolfo Rosales (2013): University of North Texas Press.

These essays collectively suggest that political agency can encompass everything from voting, lobbying, networking, grassroots organizing, and mobilization, to dramatic protest. Latinos are in fact gaining access to the same political institutions that worked so hard to marginalize them.

book cover        Clerical Ideology in a Revolutionary Age: The Guadalajara Church and the Idea of the Mexican Nation, 1788-
        1853 by Brian F. Connaughton (2003): University of Calgary Press.

Clerical ideology played an important role in the complex cultural transition Mexico underwent from the late eighteenth to early nineteenth centuries. This study aims to accurately situate clerical ideology in relation to the social, economic and political transformation promoted by both the Enlightened absolutism of the late colonial regime and the new, independent state born in 1821.
