Latino Crossings: Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and the Politics of Citizenship

Arturo Ignacio Sánchez, a Professor in the Humanities Department at LaGuardia Community College, reviews Latino Crossings: Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and the Politics of Citizenship. The book is about Mexicans and Puerto Ricans in two ethnically iconic neighborhoods in Chicago. The authors challenge conventionally accepted ideas such as a shared sense of Latino identity, and highlight how U.S. citizenship and ethnic differences create unequal access to many resources.
