'Moraga demonstrates her virtuosity as a poet; and, as a poet, she brings to her nonfiction essays images so hard, honest, and disturbing that her political analysis is breathtakingly personal and immediate.' San Francisco ChronicleThis new edition of Moragaâ__s seminal work on identity, sexuality, history, and the politics of Chicana feminism includes a new Introduction, three new chapters, and new poetry from Moraga. Weaving together poetry and prose, Spanish and English, family history and political theory, Loving in the War Years has been a classic in the feminist and Chicano canon since its 1983 release.
