New World (Dis)orders and Peripheral Strains: Specifying Cultural Dimensions in Latin American and Latino Studies (Lacasa Publication Series)
ISBN: 1877636169 MARCH/Abrazo. 1998 Nonfiction. This book joins current debates over postmodernity and globalization and their application to Latin American and U.S. Latino questions. The essays and art works presented trace Latin America's space and supposed "peripheral place" in a post-Cold War "New World Order" where controlled democratization and neo-liberal policies highlight growing trends of ungovernability and (dis) order.
