They uncover the transformation of Latino memory, identity, and destiny in the social spaces of the barrio. Using Spanish, English, and Spanglish, contributors mingle the jingle of palatero trucks with sweatshops, in-your-face cartoons, rock music, family photos, hard-edged reporting, videos and lyrical laments. The result is a joyful celebration of a pivotal moment in Latino history in the USA."--BOOK JACKET."
