The Chicano Studies Reader, the best-selling anthology of articles from Aztlán: A Journal of Chicano Studies, has been newly expanded with a group of essays that focus on Chicana/o and Latina/o youth. This section, Generations against Exclusion, joins Decolonizing the Territory, Performing Politics, (Re)Configuring Identities, Remapping the World, and Continuing to Push Boundaries. Introductions to each section offer analysis and contextualization. This fourth edition of the Reader documents the foundation of Chicano studies, testifies to its broad disciplinary range, and explores its continuing development.
