Choice Review

Against the backdrop of the dominant Anglo-American society, the Hispanic periodical's influence in sustaining and nurturing Hispanic cultural identity in the US has had central importance. A brief history, constituting more than a third of the volume, examines the press in exile (notably Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico), the immigrant press, and the nativist press. Each of the three categories is represented by selected typical or pacesetting publications. Especially important was the role of the cronista, whose essays and columns encouraged traditional (i.e., conservative) Hispanic values, championing them over those of the liberal (libertine?) Anglo culture. The comprehensive bibliography lists 1,700 periodical titles, 900 of which are presumably still published, hence accessible, according to the sources cited. Geographic, chronological, and subject indexes are provided. This well-prepared, informative study offers valuable insight into the role of the Hispanic periodical both as mirror and advocate of Hispanic cultures in the US. Highly recommended for collections serving Hispanic studies and journalism/media programs. C. E. Perry; East Central University
