Ilan Stavans Publishes "A Most Imperfect Union: A Contrarian History of the United States"

Ilan Stavans, Amherst’s Lewis-Sebring Professor in Latin American and Latino Culture, is the author of A Most Imperfect Union: A Contrarian History of the United States (Basic Books). With text by Stavans and illustrations by cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz, the book presents the nation’s history through true stories of its “most overlooked and marginalized peoples: the workers, immigrants, housewives, and slaves who built America from the ground up and made this country what it is today.”
