Why is it important?

The review may encourage scholars to read or perhaps adopt this book for a few of their courses. The book is a significant contribution to contemporary Hispanic cultural studies. it is erudite and very well written.


I think that 'Cruces de fronteras' should be considered alongside Néstor García Canclini's seminal 'Culturas híbridas: Estrategias para entrar y salir de la modernidad' (1989).
