Villagers in northern New Mexico refer to the south-facing side of a wall as la resolana, meaning the place where the sun shines.? Every culture has a resolana, a place where the resolaneros the villagersgather, dialogue, and reflect on society, culture, and politics. The buried knowledge that emerges from this process may be pure gold,? or el oro del barrio, a metaphor for the culturally contextualized knowledge gathered at the resolana. Coming from diverse backgrounds in social work, sociology, public administration, literature, history, and education, three modern resolaneros take the twin concepts of resolana and el oro del barrio on a breathtaking journey from their rural roots to their application in an urban setting and on to a holistic view of globalization. The authors offer a humane perspective on transborder cultures and all communities struggling to maintain their cultural and linguistic identities. They share an optimistic view of how ordinary people everywhere can take back control of their own destinies. This book is about uncovering subjugated knowledgeel oro del barrio through resolana, a dynamic process of thought and action. Resolana will inspire dialogue and creativity from those interested in sociology, political science, social work, and Chicano studies, as well as public-policy makers and the general public.

Reviews

This book is on the cutting edge of Chicano studies and the possibilities for social action generated by ethnic studies. It takes a fresh approach to the traditional understanding of the clash between tradition and innovation. Robert Con Davis-Undiano"
