1 ANDRE, MARIA CLAUDIA (EDITOR). Latina Icons: Iconos Femeninos Latinos E Hispanoamericanos.
Floricanto Press, Mountain View: 2006. La Mujer Latina Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
This book brings the most prominent Latino icons, popular female figures, and offers the most important and clear description of the process of iconization of the most cherished Latin American women. This book attempts to define and provide meaning to these popular women within the context of popular symbols and the function these women played in the construction of their individual and collective identity. These articles, written by well-known Latin Americanists, many of them Latinas themselves, reflect a most revealing landscape of iconization of these Latinas ranging from religious, political, and popular articulation. These images help us understand the complex discursive process of the creation of popular images, and the influence that institutions and cultural traditions play in their creation. La Malinche, the movie actress Maria Felix, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Maria Ilonza, Frida Khalo, Selena, Yemaya, Carmen Miranda, and Malena, the woman object of the most notable Tango, are among the figures discussed in this extraordinary book. Esta coleccion de ensayos explora los procesos de representacion y de iconizacion de algunas de las figuras femeninas mas prominentes de Amrica Latina. En ella se intenta definir qu significado tienen estas figuras dentro del contexto popular y determinar cual es la funcion que desempe–an en la construccion de una identidad colectiva e individual. Los ensayos aqui incluidos presentan un revelador panorama sobre las mśltiples articulaciones entre lo religioso, lo politico y lo popular que nos permite vislumbrar no solo la compleja red discursiva que circula a travs de los diversos medios de produccion cultural, sino tambin establecer el nivel de participacion e influencia que ejercen de los organismos institucionales en la construccion de simbolos, imagenes y tradiciones culturales. La Malinche, la actriz del cine Maria Flix, Sor Juana Ins de la Cruz, Maria Ilonza, Frida Khalo, Selena, Yamaya, Carmen Miranda, y Malena, la mujer centro del tango mas famoso escrito, son las figuras femeninas aqui discutidas extensivamente en este extraordinario libro.
