Part II, New Voices/New Visions, explores the innovative and creative forces emerging in the region, including feminist movements, religious innovations, and developments in literature and the arts. Part III, American Identities in Formation, analyzes some of the varied identities of people of the region, from indigenous peoples in Mayan communities to immigrants and refugees within the Americas and in the United States.show more
