Moral behavior and ethical reflection do not occur in a vacuum, but within a religious, social, economic, and political context. In Dignidad, therefore, Ismael Garcia touches on key experiences that can be identified as formative of the ethical view of Hispanics. The experience of migration, the dynamics of social integration, the struggle to define new identity and be faithful to one's cultural heritage are seen as relevant to the formation of the Hispanic moral point of view. Garcia also shows how -- beyond class, race, and gender -- the experience of being defined as "Other" is important in shaping the Hispanic moral framework. Both analytical and advisory, this volume addresses the intersection of Hispanic and Anglo cultures. It provides Anglo readers with a clear understanding of Hispanic ethical reflection.
