“Compelling and provocative, this is an impressive and timely collection of essays. Although Marxist approaches have always had an important presence in Latino/a literary studies, this is the first collection that foregrounds such approaches to contemporary texts. The essays range over issues as diverse as mass incarceration, the privatization of public resources, residential segregation, waning state sovereignty, Chicana feminism, and new forms of class conflict. Dialectical Imaginaries will be an invaluable resource for scholars in the field, as well as scholars of other ethnic literatures and American literature more broadly.”
—John Alba Cutler, Northwestern University
“A sophisticated and stimulating book, one that is sure to have a significant impact on literary and cultural studies. . . . The essays dissolve stale debates about race/ethnicity versus class by demonstrating the intrinsic working-class-ness of much Latino/a writing, as well as the value of Marxist class analysis in relation to this body of texts.”
—Barbara Foley, Rutgers University-Newark
