Contemporary Chicana Literature:

(Re)Writing the Maternal Script
Cristina Herrera
ISBN: 9781604978759

Despite the growing literary scholarship on Chicana writers, few, if any, studies have exhaustively explored themes of motherhood, maternity, and mother-daughter relationships in their novels.Mother-daughter relationships have been ignored in much literary criticism, but this book reveals that maternal relationships are crucial to the study of Chicana literature; more precisely, examining maternal relationships provides insight to Chicana writers’ rejection of intersecting power structures that otherwise silence Chicanas and women of color.

Cuban–Latin American Relations in the Context of a Changing Hemisphere

Gary Prevost and Carlos Oliva Campos
ISBN: 9781604977592

This volume seeks to fill a very significant void in the recently published scholarship in English on Cuba’s relationship with Latin America. Cuban foreign policy has received attention over the years, but the bulk of the scholarship has been on its relationship with the United States. This book demonstrates conclusively that a decade into the twenty-first century, Cuba has achieved a position in the hemisphere that is far less isolated than at any previous time since the triumph of the Cuban revolution in 1959. That reintegration into hemispheric affairs is evident in many crucial areas like politics, economics, and culture. Read More..
