Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this companion volume to the 1996 PBS series of the same name, Rosales (history, Arizona State Univ.) describes the ten-year period of the Chicano movement from about 1965 to 1975. The author also situates the political movement of this time period in the historical context of 19th- and early 20th-century political activity. As such, his work is a valuable historical summary of political activism of Latinos of Mexican descent. An underlying theme is the discussion of their role in the overall American Civil Rights movement of the Sixties and Seventies. The value of Rosales's book is enhanced by the use of interview transcripts done for the TV series. The volume will be valuable for all libraries with collections on U.S. history.?Mark L.

From Booklist

Rosales offers a sorely needed chronicle of the fastest-growing so-called minority population in the U.S. He reaches back to the Mexican-American War, as a result of which Mexican territory was cut in half and tens of thousands of Mexicans became Americans overnight. The author then discusses the Mexican Revolution and its effect on emigration. The book is an education and inspiration; particularly, the moving chapter on the United Farm Workers and its founder and leader, Cesar Chavez, will give light and hope to anyone who has doubts about the power of love and peace to move and change social, political, and economic ills. Raul Nino --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought this for a graduate course in Diversity and Oppression. I've always been pretty well versed in the African American civil rights movement, but interestingly, not in the Mexican American movement. Really informative. This info should be in high school history texts.

Format: Hardcover
Chicano!: The History of the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement records with power the history of chicana/os in the U.S. from various vantage points: sociology, literature, anthropology, statistics, etc. This work textualizes the trauma experienced by Mexican American peoples attempting to assert an individual and collective identity in the land that was once theirs--Aztlan--and which continues to be so in spirit. The Chicana/o "experience," this book argues, is much more complex than the history that many have written, and goes beyond the hyphen; it is hybrid in many ways. The label "chicano" for example, goes beyond "Mexican-American." In Drink Cultura, Burciaga explains what this book argues throughout its pages: "Mexico never left the Southwest, it just learned English" (55)

I like this book better than "The Course of Mexican History", which was also required for my class.

It looks like a bunch of articles but read like a textbook. Black and white print. Nicely organized sections.

A rather interesting read that shows you both sides of Mexican and American mistreatment, instead of painting one side as the villain.

I ordered this book as a resource to my unit on the Chicano Movement. I really expected a more comprehensive record of this aspect of American history that is very much unknown, overlooked and not really discussed at all. However, it is a good start to this area of scholarship that should encourage additional research for both educators and teachers.
