Impassioned and inventive in its unexpected pairing of beats and Chicanos, Martinez gives us fresh perspective on both groups, as well as the American political culture that produced them. The AmericasIn a subtle, shifting and brilliant study of the intersection of politics and American and Latino literature, Martinez first revisits the Beats and recasts the figureheads of that literary movement, revealing a reactionary strain in the libertarianism of Ginsberg, Kerouac and Burroughs and analyzing its impact, as well as examining the careers of a number of Mexican-American artists and activists and playing this second collective portrait against the first.
