Overview

The United States of Mestizo is a powerful manifesto attesting to the fundamental changes the nation has undergone in the last half-century. Writer Ilan Stavans meditates on how the cross-fertilizing process that defined the Americas during the colonial period—the racial melding of Europeans and indigenous peoples—foretells the miscegenation that is the most salient profile of America today.
