"In this well-written history, Nieto-Phillips explores the complex and often misunderstood nature of "Spanish-American" identity among Latinos in New Mexico. His well-organized survey of the long history of racial caste and bloodline heritage in Spain, Spanish America, and the US Southwest shows how older caste practices marked lines of seperation in these hybrid Spanish cultures. . .
