The Trouble with Unity

Latino Politics and the Creation of Identity

Cristina Beltran

  • One of the only sustained critiques of ethnic and racial politics to engage with the canon of Western political theory
  • Offers an original and theoretically driven account of the Chicano and Puerto Rican movements of the 1960s and '70s
  • Counterintuitive critique of pan-ethnicity and popular accounts of Latino empowerment and electoral politics
