From the Publisher
Hector P. García: In Relentless Pursuit of Justice, the first definitive, superbly researched and documented biography of this great American hero is not a one-sided profile of García, but an objective appraisal of his successes and failures, as well as an analysis of the political, social and personal issues that he and the American G.I. Forum confronted during his lifetime.
