Latino American Literature in the Classroom: The Politics of Transformation

In this original look at how ethnic literature enters the U.S. classroom and the literary canon, Delia Poey compares the risks facing teachers and interpreters of well-known Latina/o or Latin American texts with those run by the "coyote" who smuggles undocumented workers across the U.S./Mexico border: both are in danger of erasing those cultural traits that made the border crossers important.

Lebanon's Second Republic: Prospects for the Twenty-first Century

The wide range of seemingly intractable political, social, and economic situations affecting Lebanon's struggle to define itself and its future role in the Middle East are examined in this collection. Looking beyond concerns of politics and international relations, the contributors examine the critical course of Muslim-Christian relations, the educational system that will enable its citizens to play a significant role in economic development, the concerns of women, and urban and ecological crises. Seeking a more thorough understanding of both Lebanon's past and its future prospects, the book will be of value not only to specialists in the area but also to students of women's issues and to those concerned with the multi-dimensional aspects of Lebanon's future.
