Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, Third Edition

Customer Reviews:

The Chicana Perspective

By Holly Fernandez - August 18, 2009

In a time where controversy continues around issues of offical language, immigration, and national identity in the United States, this book opens the eyes of the "dominant white culture" in America to struggles that our latino citizens need to overcome in their lives. Not only an excellent book for any latina to read who shares the same expereince as Anzaldua, mestiza born in the United States struggling to choose a clear identity, but also a highly recommended read for non latinos. In her introduction, Anzaldua extends an invitation to anglo americans to meet them halfway in understanding these controversial issues of our society. Although written in the style of a personal narrative that at times makes you laugh out loud, this book will help chicanas have a better understanding of their own heritage and whites to rethink their positions on immigration and official language.

Gloria Anzaldua Borderlands

Gloria Anzaldua's 1987 book Borderlands La Frontera: The New Mestiza is a place of conflicting voices that all belong to one person. She plays with language, identity, and genre by using Spanish, Nahuatl, and English to consider her background as "a border woman" between two cultures "Mexican (with a heavy Indian influence) and the Anglo (as a member of a colonized people in our own territory) (Anzaldua, preface). The book is both autobiographical and theoretical. She employs both prose and poetry to consider what it is to live between borders. The borders to which Anzaldua refer are between nations, identities, and languages. It is a liminal space that she explores, which means that it has elements of conflict and complexity. In this book Anzaldua is first a theorist and then a poet. Anzaldua offers a place where stories meet and recombine to help readers consider alternative realities that might have been foreign to them. She disrupts and addresses autocolonization of hegemonic... read more

wishing for review of 3rd edition

By C. J. Woodward - June 16, 2009

I have the first and second editions and my praise of each is complete. However, I came to this amazon.com page because I wanted to learn about the 3rd edition, which has additional materials from teachers, scholars, and critics. amazon.com has provided nothing at all re: the 3rd ed. The "search" inside the book is a search inside the 2nd ed, and the "product descriptions" are for the first edition. None of the reviews are regarding the 3rd edition. What a frustrating experience.
