The Body as Capital

Masculinities in Contemporary Latin American Fiction

The University of Arizona Press

Badmen, Bandits, and Folk Heroes

The Ambivalence of Mexican American Identity in Literature and Film

The University of Arizona Press

Badmen, Bandits, and Folk Heroes compares the literary and cinematic representation of Mexican American masculine identity from early twentieth-century adventure stories and Westerns through contemporary self-representations by Chicano/a writers and filmmakers. Juan J. Alonzo proposes a reconsideration of the early stereotypical depictions of Mexicans in fiction and film: rather than viewing stereotypes as unrelentingly negative, Alonzo presents them as part of a complex apparatus of identification and disavowal. Alonzo reassesses Chicano/a self-representation in literature and film, and argues that the Chicano/a expression of identity is characterized by an acknowledgment of the contingent status of present-day identity formations.
