Summary "This co-edited volume is the first book to incorporate a transdisciplinary approach that examines transnational Mexican cultural productions through a variety of analytical perspectives.

The essays, interviews, and poetry included in this volume elaborate on the creation of new forms of citizenship that reshape the long history of exclusion that has marked the experience of these particular groups not only in the United States but also in what is geo-politically defined as Mexico"--Provided by publisher
