Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a biography of Reynaldo G. Garza, the first Mexican American to reach a federal judgeship and a member of an important generation of Mexican Americans about whom little has been written, particularly for a general audience. The book is valuable for what it reveals about upwardly mobile middle-class Mexican Americans growing up in Texas, a state memorable for its anti-Mexican prejudice. The author's primary thesis is that Judge Garza succeeded by retaining a "bi-cultural ethnicity," allowing him to achieve successful integration into Anglo culture. A Texas native working as a writer in Washington, D.C., Fisch illustrates this point effectively. But there is little depth in her examination of the personal philosophy of Garza, whom she occasionally paints too uncritically, and at times her thesis seems unchallenged. Despite these shortcomings, much can be learned about Mexican Americans of this era. For ethnic studies collections.?Roderic A. Camp, Latin American Ctr., Tulane Univ., New Orleans

Format: Hardcover
Reynaldo G. Garza is a giant in the political and legal history of Texas and is most deserving of biographical treatment. All Rise successfully recounts many of the highlights of Judge Garza's life and career. It ultimately disappoints, however. First, the author lacks the legal background necessary to explain the significance of many of Judge Garza's judicial opinions. Second, the book fails to fully introduce the reader to the biographical subject himself, leaving him portrayed as two-dimensional and leaving the reader wanting more.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I find the author to be naive and biased in her assessment of Reyanldo Garza, his life and the politics of South Texas. Her initial premise regarding biculturalism is flawed. Anyone who lived in South Texas and understood the culture would understand that from page one. I felt like gagging as I read this book and finally could not finish it. Too bad, the people deserve a deeper understanding of what was really happening at the time.
