New York is the capital of mambo and a global factory of
latinidad. This book covers the topic in all its
multifaceted aspects, from Jim Crow baseball in the first half of
the twentieth century to hip hop and ethno-racial politics, from
Latinas and labor unions to advertising and Latino culture, from
Cuban cuisine to the language of signs in New York City.
Together the articles map out the main conceptions of Latino
identity as well as the historical process of Latinization of New
York. Mambo Montage is both a way of imagining
latinidad and an angle of vision on the city.
