In this first comprehensive study of Latin America's literary vanguards of the 1920s and 1930s, Vicky Unruh explores the movement's provocative and polemic nature. Latin American vanguardism—a precursor to the widely acclaimed work of contemporary Latin American writers—was stimulated by the European avant-garde movements of the World War I era. But as Unruh's wide-ranging study attests, the vanguards of Latin America—emerging from the continent's own historical circumstances—developed a very distinct character and voice. Through manifestos, experimental texts, and ribald public performance, the vanguardists' work intertwined art, culture, and the politics of the day to produce a powerful brand of aesthetic activism, one that sparked an entire rethinking of the meaning of art and culture throughout Latin America.

Vanguards and Followers is the first thorough attempt to explore the long history of youth as a community in competition with adult society. Louis Filler examines the question: what is the tradition connecting Randolph Bourne with Abbie Hoffman, Adah Menken with Joan Baez, or Vachel Lindsay with Bob Dylan? He looks back to the fundamental social, economic, and cultural conditions that created opportunities for youthful expression. The first part of the book is an analysis of early dissident activities from the seventeenth century to World War II. He shows that youth movements were a part of American society almost from its beginnings. The second part of the book centers on the quarter century after the war. Filler examines the postwar climate that helped stimulate the youth eruption. Vanguards and Followers will appeal to a wide audience, including sociologists, cultural historians, and philosophers.

Black Vanguards and Black Gangsters: From Seeds of Discontent to a Declaration of War examines the extent to which black gangsterism is a product of civil rights gains, community transition, black flight, social activism, and failed grassroots social movement groups. Unfortunately, the voice of the ghetto was politically tempered, silenced, ignored, and at times rebuked by a black leadership that seemed to be preoccupied with a middle-class integrationist agenda. As a result, a once strong sense of universal brotherhood became fractured and the mood of the oppressed shifted to confusion only to be tempered by relentless frustration, out of which emerged black gangs.

Frank "Pache" Pachecano, a former ICE detective, has been tapped by female FBI special agent Aitana Garcia, to help solve the murder of a twelve year old girl. The government of the United States had recently enacted the Disabled Children's Immigration Act, which said any disabled child under the age of twelve, who was found on North American soil illegally, could enter a DCI program and receive full citizenship at the age of eighteen. A young girl, around the age of ten, fell of a boat that had children being smuggled into the United States from Cuba. She was found dead on the beach the next morning, along with a middle aged man who had been shot in the chest and killed. Special Agent Garcia claimed the infamous 'American Coyotes' smuggling ring was involved, and she needed Pache to help her prove it. What they didn't understand at the beginning of their investigation, was that the smuggling ring had much more depth than they expected. Psychiatrists, doctors, lawyers, schools and many others were benefiting from the subsidized money the government was giving out to the DCI programs. Pache and Garcia's investigation shed light on the corruption of both American and Illegal children who are used for monetary purposes in the United States.
