Essays cover a broad range of topics including police and military recruiters on campus, testing and accountability regimes such as No Child Left Behind, and efforts by students and teachers to circumvent the most egregious forms of surveillance in public education. Each contributor is committed to the continued critique of the disparity and inequality in the use of surveillance to target and sort students along lines of race, class, and gender

8 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 1,356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's Latina/o population has now reached over 50 million, or 15% of the estimated total U.S. population of 300 million, and a growing portion of the world's population now lives and works in cities that are increasingly diverse. Latino Urbanism provides the first national perspective on Latina/o urban policy, addressing a wide range of planning policy issues that impact both Latinas/os in the US, as well as the nation as a whole, tracing how cities develop, function, and are affected by socio-economic change. . The three sections of the book address the politics of planning and its historic relationship with Latinas/os, the relationship between the Latina/o community and conventional urban planning issues and challenges, and the future of urban policy and Latina/o barrios. Moving beyond a traditional analysis of Latinas/os in the Southwest, the volume expands the understanding of the important relationships between urbanization and Latinas/os including Mexican Americans of several generations within the context of the restructuring of cities, in view of the cultural and political transformation currently encompassing the nation

16 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers comparative and relational analyses of race, ethnicity, and culture at a time when boundaries designating racialized groups are being radically redrawn.

Latino social movements : historical and theoretical perspectives : a new political science reader by Rodolfo D Torres( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 2009, Latinos will become the nation's largest racial ethnic group. More important than sheer numbers is the fact that Latino men and women represent a significant and growing part of the U.S. working class. Focusing on class politics, community development, patriarchy, and capital, the contributors trace these concerns within the context of popular attempts to transform the social conditions of Latino life. In doing so, this collection of original essays sets forth an essential and much delayed mapping of Latino politics in "postindustrial" capitalism
Savage state : welfare capitalism and inequality by Edward J Martin( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Savage State Edward J. Martin and Rodolfo D. Torres demonstrate the analytical utility of classical Marxist theory and draw on wider critical "postmodern" frameworks to argue that a critique of welfare policy within the context of capitalism is more timely and important than ever before. The authors explore the demise of welfare policy in the United States following the passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 and evaluate the role of the state in capitalist society along with other comparative welfare policy models. They conclude by analyzing alternative futures in an era of increased inequality. Savage State will be invaluable reading for students of sociology, politics, and social policy."--Jacket

6 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brings together the most important writings that shape Latino consciousness, culture, and activism today. This historical anthology is unique in its presentation of cross-cultural writings--especially from Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Cuban writers and political documents--that shape the ideology and experience of U.S. Latinos. Students can read, firsthand, the works or authors who most shaped their cultural heritage. They are guided by introductions that set each article or document in its historical context and describe its relevance today. The writings touch on many themes, but are guided by this book's concern for a quest for public citizenship among all Latino populations and a better understanding of racialized populations in the U.S. today.--From publisher description
