"Latina/os and the Media offers a richly complex look at the mediated world of Latinidad. The analyses presented here challenge static understandings of representation and media politics and replace those traditional notions with the contradictions that now comprise our understanding of the relationship between Latina/os and the media. From citizenship to sex, readers get it all."
Lisa Flores, University of Colorado
