Berta Esperanza Hernández-Truyol Building Bridges Iii--personal Narratives, Incoherent Paradigms, and Plural Citizens 19 Chicano-Latino Law Review 303 (Spring 1998) Because we never had a chance to talk, to teach each other and learn from each other, racism had diminished all the lives it touched. . . .

Pat K. Chew Constructing Our Selves/our Families: Comments on Latcrit Theory 19 Chicano-Latino Law Review 297 (Spring 1998) Our focus on this panel is how we construct ourselves. One ostensible way to construct ourselves is to identify the different social roles we assume--as teacher, lawyer, mother, Asian-American.

Ralph C. Carmona Foreword 10 La Raza Law Journal 601 (Fall, 1998) The issue of affirmative action represents an attempt to accommodate the diversity that is fundamental to the nature of this nation.

Kevin R. Johnson Immigration and Latino Identity 19 Chicano-Latino Law Review 197 (Spring 1998) The racial identity of people of color, including Latinas and Latinos, must be viewed from at least two vantage-points.

Jean Stefancic Latino and Latina Critical Theory: an Annotated Bibliography 10 La Raza Law Journal 423 (Spring 1998) Latino/a critical scholarship, though largely ignored, has been around for a long time.

Jorge H. del Pinal Latinos and California's Future: Too Few at the School's Door 10 La Raza Law Journal 631 (Fall, 1998) Latinos have a long history in California.

Thus, Latinos were present in what is now California... 1998 Yes
Gerald P. López Learning about Latinos 19 Chicano-Latino Law Review 363 (Spring 1998) To really matter, Latinos must be recognized. And to some degree, we must be understood too, yes, in all our complexity, and yet so as to be seen as a force sufficiently coherent to exercise clout. That wouldn't seem to be asking too much, either of ourselves or of others. After all, basic recognition, some understanding, and occasional influence... 1998 Yes

Larry Catá Backer Not a Zookeeper's Culture: Latcrit Theory and the Search for Latino/a Authenticity in the U.s. 4 Texas Hispanic Journal of Law and Policy 7 (Spring 1998) We always used to know who we were. We did not need anyone to tell us. We did not have to think too hard about it. We understood that we were many and that we might not like each other or each other's practices very much at times. We also understood how everyone else saw us. We were mostly Mexican (certainly, that is how Disney saw us). We were... 1998 Yes

This is a typical day in the life of many Americans, but it is even worse for single mothers with limited... 1998 Yes

Martha S. West The Historical Roots of Affirmative Action 10 La Raza Law Journal 607 (Fall, 1998) Affirmative action is a politically-loaded word in California.
