This introduction reframes Mexican American cultural production within the United States away from immigration and calls for a longer historical and multilingual approach to Latinos in U.S. culture. It argues for the importance of Mexican American manhood in understanding gender in the United States and describes some of the prevailing forms that Mexican American manhood took.

Keywords:   Immigration, Citizenship, Xenophobia, Manhood and masculinity, nineteenth century, nationalism
