Editorial Reviews

Review

"This excellent collection of primary sources illustrates virtually every major theme relating to the history of the mushrooming Mexican-origin communities in the United States. The updated bibliography is superb."
Manuel G. Gonzales, Diablo Valley College

"Mintz breathes new life into the American narrative with a collection that integrates the Mexican American experience through imaginative, expertly contextualized materials and valuable aids for further study."
Roberto Trevino, The University of Texas at Arlington

"Mexican American Voices demonstrates that "mestizaje" is alive and well within the United States historical narrative. The sincere deployment of the Mexican American voice will engage students and enhance the classroom experience."
Miguel A. Levario, Texas Tech University

". . . ideal for a student audience. Mintz illustrates the varied sources scholars use to write history. An enlightening introduction places each chronological period in historical context. The book revises the popular understanding that the history of the U.S. is one which moves from east to west. Most important, it makes a statement on what constitutes Mexican American history."
Arnoldo De Leon, Angelo State University

". . . an engaging and thorough documentary introduction to the long fetch of Mexican American history. From the colonial expansion of the Spanish empire to the grassroots militancy of the Chicana/o Movement, Mintz equips students and teachers of the Mexican American experience with the arsenal to explore its complicated and often contradictory relationship to broader narratives of United States and continental history. . . . a welcome and important resource."
Luis Alvarez, University of California, San Diego

From the Back Cover

Mexican Americans are the youngest and fastest growing ethnic group in the United States. They are also among the nation's oldest communities, with a rich and complex history that has largely been overlooked. In this volume, Steven Mintz seeks to restore Mexican Americans to their rightful place in the narrative of American history.

Through its carefully edited selections, Mexican American Voices: A Documentary Reader draws on the voices of Mexican Americans to chronicle and interpret their experience from the beginnings of Spanish colonization of the northern Mexican frontier to the present. Over 90 primary documents, a visual history of the Mexican American experience, and accessible introductions and headnotes all come together to provide an indispensable introduction to Mexican American history and culture.
