In this haunting novel about two young vatos, author Sergio Elizondo eulogizes Óscar Balboa and Valentín Rodríguez, who are sixteen and nineteen respectively when they are shot and killed by the police in Austin, Texas. On leave from Camp Gary, a youth training facility in nearby San Marcos, the two “strutting icons of Raza manhood worthy of a guitar ballad” are the novel’s principal voices as they lie dying. In other chapters, óscar remembers traveling north with his parents as a young boy to pick crops and joining farm workers’ protest marches. Songs of all types—symphonic, orchestral and protest—infuse the narrative: “We’ll summon the spirit of a poet so that he can adapt our people’s story through time and set it to music.” Elizondo’s short and tragic novel bears witness to la raza’s struggles for rights, whether in the fields, the work place or on college campuses. Originally published in Spanish and now available for the first time in English, this classic of Mexican-American literature provides insight into the Chicano civil rights movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Muerte en una estrella / Shooting Star is a profoundly disturbing and moving denunciation of bigotry and discrimination.

Recognition of the role of animals in ancient diet, economy, politics, and ritual is vital to understanding ancient cultures fully, while following the clues available from animal remains in reconstructing environments is vital to understanding the ancient relationship between humans and the world around them. In response to the growing interest in the field of zooarchaeology, this volume presents current research from across the many cultures and regions of Mesoamerica, dealing specifically with the most current issues in zooarchaeological literature. Geographically, the essays collected here index the different aspects of animal use by the indigenous populations of the entire area between the northern borders of Mexico and the southern borders of lower Central America. This includes such diverse cultures as the north Mexican hunter-gatherers, the Olmec, Maya, Mixtec, Zapotec, and Central American Indians. The time frame of the volume extends from the earliest human occupation, the Preclassic, Classic, Postclassic, and Colonial manifestations, to recent times. The book's chapters, written by experts in the field of Mesoamerican zooarchaeology, provide important general background on the domestic and ritual use of animals in early and classic Mesoamerica and Central America, but deal also with special aspects of human-animal relationships such as early domestication and symbolism of animals, and important yet otherwise poorly represented aspects of taphonomy and zooarchaeological methodology. Spanish-language version also available (ISBN 978-1-937040-12-3).
