Eating Puerto Rico : a history of food, culture, and identity by Cruz M Ortiz Cuadra( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a history of the foods and eating habits of Puerto Rico; it unfolds into an examination of Puerto Rican society from the Spanish conquest to the present. Each chapter is centered on an iconic Puerto Rican foodstuff, from rice and cornmeal to beans, roots, herbs, fish, and meat. The author shows how their production and consumption connects with race, ethnicity, gender, social class, and cultural appropriation in Puerto Rico. Using a multidisciplinary approach and a sweeping array of sources, the author asks whether Puerto Ricans really still are what they ate. Whether judging by a host of social and economic factors, or by the foods once eaten that have now disappeared, the author concludes that the nature of daily life in Puerto Rico has experienced a sea change. -- From publisher's website
They should stay there : the story of Mexican migration and repatriation during the Great Depression by Fernando Saúl Alanís Enciso( )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here, for the first time in English--and from the Mexican perspective--is the story of Mexican migration to the United States and the astonishing forced repatriation of hundreds of thousands of people to Mexico during the worldwide economic crisis of the Great Depression. While Mexicans were hopeful for economic reform following the Mexican revolution, by the 1930s, large numbers of Mexican nationals had already moved north and were living in the United States in one of the twentieth century's most massive movements of migratory workers. Fernando Sauʻl Alanís Enciso provides an illuminating backstory that demonstrates how fluid and controversial the immigration and labor situation between Mexico and the United States was in the twentieth century and continues to be in the twenty-first. When the Great Depression took hold, the United States stepped up its enforcement of immigration laws and forced more than 350,000 Mexicans, including their U.S.-born children, to return to their home country. While the Mexican government was fearful of the resulting economic implications, President Lázaro Cárdenas fostered the repatriation effort for mostly symbolic reasons relating to domestic politics. In clarifying the repatriation episode through the larger history of Mexican domestic and foreign policy, Alanís connects the aftermath of the Mexican revolution to the relentless political tumult surrounding today's borderlands immigration issues."--Page 4 of cover
A cultural history of Cuba during the U.S. occupation, 1898-1902 by Marial Iglesias Utset( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on archival and published sources, Iglesias illustrates the process by which Cubans maintained and created their own culturally relevant national symbols in the face of the U.S. occupation. Tracing Cuba#x19;s efforts to modernize in conjunction with plans by U.S. officials to shape the process, Iglesias analyzes, among other things, the influence of the English language on Spanish usage; the imposition of North American holidays, such as Thanksgiving, in place of traditional Cuban celebrations; the transformation of Havana into a new metropolis; and the development of patriotic symbols, including the Cuban flag, songs, monuments, and ceremonies. Iglesias argues that the Cuban response to U.S. imperialism, though largely critical, indeed involved elements of reliance, accommodation, and welcome. Above all, Iglesias argues, Cubans engaged the Americans on multiple levels, and her work demonstrates how their ambiguous responses to the U.S. occupation shaped the cultural transformation that gave rise to a new Cuban nationalism

The Cuban connection : drug trafficking, smuggling, and gambling in Cuba from the 1920s to the Revolution by Eduardo Sáenz Rovner( )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive history of crime and corruption in Cuba, The Cuban Connection challenges the common view that widespread poverty and geographic proximity to the United States were the prime reasons for soaring rates of drug trafficking, smuggling, gambling, and prostitution in the tumultuous decades preceding the Cuban revolution. Eduardo Saenz Rovner argues that Cuba's historically well-established integration into international migration, commerce, and transportation networks combined with political instability and rampant official corruption to help lay the foundation for the development of organized crime structures powerful enough to affect Cuba's domestic and foreign politics and its very identity as a nation." "Saenz traces the routes taken around the world by traffickers and smugglers. After Cuba, the most important player in this story is the United States. The involvement of gangsters and corrupt U.S. officials and businessmen enabled prohibited substances to reach a strong market in the United States, from rum running during Prohibition to increased demand for narcotics during the Cold War. Originally published in Colombia in 2005, the book has been revised and updated by the author for this first English-language edition."--Jacket
