CHOICE Review

Sociologists Feagin (Texas A & M Univ.) and Cobas (emer., Arizona State Univ.) make an important contribution to discussions of both racism and issues facing Latino(a)s. They provide an outstanding overview of theories of racism, including Feagin's "white racial frame," as well as a brief if comprehensive history of Latino(a)s in the US. Both of these elements are critical for setting the stage for readers unfamiliar with theory and/or history. The authors build their text around interviews with 75 middle-class and professional Latino(a)s. The interviews range from individuals' experiences with racism to presenting interviewees with vignettes that encouraged discussion about support for or opposition to white racism toward Latino(a)s. Not surprising to those familiar with internalized racism, some Latino(a)s invoked similar stereotypes when presented with scenarios. Others, both in response to vignettes and to their own experiences with racism, engaged in active resistance to racial oppression. An excellent read for students and scholars in the field. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries. A. J. Hattery George Mason University
