Overview

Recipient of the 1993 National Book Award in Cultural Studies from the Association for Asian American Studies
The Gustavus Myers Center for the Study of Human Rights in the United States Outstanding Book on Human Rights for 1992

"... essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the relationship between the race/class nexus and literature in the U.S."
-James R. Bennett, The Arkansas Quarterly

"E. San Juan, Jr., is a lively and controversial writer whose work will surprise and inform readers with its conjecture of knowledge, commitment, and intellectual energy."
-Paul Buhle, Director of the Oral History of the American Left, Taminent Library, New York University

Deploying the resources of critical theory, semiotics, and historical analysis, the author offers a global critique of multiculturalism, ethnicity-based social studies, orthodox Marxism, and postmodern approaches from the perspective of the struggles of people of color for representation and self-determination.

E. San Juan Jr. is professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Connecticut, Storrs.
