New World [Dis] Orders & Peripheral Strains: Specifying Cultural Dimensions in Latin American and Latino Studies is highly complex, largely due to its jargon laden dense text, but it is an indispensable and provocative document. Through words and images, it examines the specific effects of postmodern thinking on a variety of Latin American political and cultural developments "as grasped from a Chicago/Midwestern locus and filtered through or related to both the Latino American formulations as well as varying paradigms and perspectives emanating from U.S. social science and literary discourses."


Although MARCH/Abrazo Press owes its genesis to el Movimiento Artistico Chicano, MARCH, itself, no longer exists as the organization was initially conceived.
