The concept of Mestizaje--a reference to the distinctive biological and cultural intermixture that occurred in the "New World"--had becme a foundational catagory in U.S. Latina/o theology. This book traces the subversive and innovative ways in which Catholic theologians have turned this concept into a powerful framework for articulating the experiences of faith of Latina/o communities.
