Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (Third Edition)

Aunt Lute Books
1987
ISBN 1879960125

Gloria AnzaldĂșa

  • Chosen one of the “Best Books of 1987” by Library Journal.
  • Selected by Utne Reader as part of its “Alternative Canon” in 1998.
  • One of Hungry Mind Review’s “Best 100 Books of the 20th Century”

Rooted in Gloria AnzaldĂșa’s experience as a Chicana, a lesbian, an activist, and a writer, the groundbreaking essays and poems in this volume profoundly challenge how we think about identity. Borderlands/La Frontera remaps understandings of what a “border” is, seeing it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us.

New to this edition:

Includes an Introduction by Sonia SaldĂ­var-Hull; an interview with Gloria AnzaldĂșa; and contributions by Norma AlarcĂłn, Julia Alvarez, Paola Bacchetta, Rusty Barcelo, Norma Elia CantĂș, Sandra Cisneros, T. Jackie Cuevas, Claire Joysmith, and AnaLouise Keating.
