The Ilan Stavans library of Latino civilization


Ten American academics, journalists, writers and activists contribute 11 sociolinguistic essays on the history and linguistic development of Spanglish and the challenges it poses in a number of areas, among them education. Included are opinion pieces, both pro and con, as well as representative artistic samples, and a chronology about the politics of language in the U.S. Designed for students, specialists, and general readers, the text is intended to enrich the reader's understanding of the richness and complexity of Latinos in the U.S., to invite people to engage in critical thinking, to generate debate and foster research.
