New York is the capital of mambo and a global factory of "latinidad." This book covers the topic in all its multifaceted aspects, from Jim Crow baseball in the first half of the twentieth century to hip hop and ethno-racial politics, from Latinas and labor unions to advertising and Latino culture, from Cuban cuisine to the language of signs in New York City.

Together the articles map out the main conceptions of Latino identity as well as the historical process of Latinization of New York. "Mambo Montage" is both a way of imagining "latinidad" and an angle of vision on the city.
