Latina/o y Musulmán
The Construction of Latina/o Identity among Latina/o Muslims in the United States
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Through his utilization of Latina/o Muslim conversion narratives, Martinez-Vasquez offers us new perspectives and ways of knowing for capturing the fluidity of Latina/o identities and communities in order to better comprehend the complexities of the U.S. Latina/o religious experience. This scholarship will bring new and important theoretical sophistication to the field of Latina/o and American Religious Studies."

"Latina/o y Musulman is a captivating book. Focusing upon the narratives of initial conversion and continuing observance of Latinos and Latinas in the USA who are Muslim, its pages open up new insights into the manner in which identities are constructed, contested, and reconstructed. Martinez-Vazquez continues to challenge us to see history and culture through a different lens, enabling us to remember outside the colonial."
