"In Crowding Out Latinos, Marco Portales sets out to account for the deficiencies found in present day educational practices in connection with Chicano youth... He makes it clear that viewing Hispanics as one undifferentiated mass leads to dangerous stereotypes and a tendency to erase particular cultural identities." --Emory Elliot, Distinguished Professor of English and Director, Center for Ideas and Society, University of California, Riverside "In his book, Crowding Out Latinos: Mexican Americans in the Public Consciousness, Professor Marco Portales argues convincingly that Hispanics have been excluded from american society, and marshals an impressive amount of evidence to support this thesis." --Ishmael Reed, Professor of English, University of California, Berkeley "In Crowding Out Latinos, Marco Portales draws from Chicano/a literature, sociology, and demographic studies in order to understand the current status and future of one of the largest and fastest growing populations in the U.S. His argument will fuel much needed debate on educational policies and the importance of Mexican Americans to the well-being of the U.S. society in general." --Teresa McKenna, Associate Professor of English, University of Southern California, Los Angeles "This volume looks at how writers such as Americo Paredes, Sandra Cisneros, and Ana Castillo have addressed the historical disenfranchisement of Latinos in the United States and the realities of Latino life. Marco Portales examines these authors' texts as interventions into the problematic educations that most students receive in the nation's schools, which, he argues, substantially contribute to the troubled relationship between the American media and Latinos." --American Literature
