Latina Icons: Iconos Femeninos Latinos e hispanoamericanos. By María Claudia André.  La Mujer Latina Series. ISBN: 978-0-915745-85-2. $26.95

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: La Malinche, the movie actress Maria Felix, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Maria Ilonza, Frida Khalo, Selena, Yemayá, Carmen Miranda, and Malena, the woman object of the most notable Tango, are among the figures discussed in this extraordinary book.

Esta colección de ensayos explora los procesos de representación y de iconización de algunas de las figuras femeninas más prominentes de América Latina. En ella se intenta definir qué significado tienen estas figuras dentro del contexto popular y determinar cuál es la función que desempeñan en la construcción de una identidad colectiva e individual.
