5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Bruce Crocker on November 26, 2004
Format: Paperback
I highly recommend that any person interested in politics and Latinos take a look at Migra Mouse, a collection of editorial cartoons by Lalo Alcaraz, the artist behind the daily comic strip La Cucaracha. The cartoons cover politics from the last decade with an emphasis on Latinos and immigration. Alcaraz has a simple but effective drawing style that says more with a few pen strokes than a political pundit with a book contract. Alcaraz is one of the sharpest political cartoonists around today. By the way, I'm Anglo and I don't always agree with Mr. Alcaraz's point of view, but I'm here to say that regardless of your skin tone, political bent, or favorite flavor of Christmas tamale, you shouldn't ignore this wonderful cartoonist.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Alcaraz provides his view of the Mexican immigration to the United States issue. This work will upset some readers for sure, but his view is worthy of some thought and consideration. I personally enjoyed the book, and I am neither Chicano nor Mexican. This is a must reading for those interested in immigration issues, Chicano and Mexican culture.

Format: Paperback
great and insightful.
We are Californians first and who are we? Taco eating salsa loving car driving folk who live in the richest state. This book touches
on that unique personna and upon reading it one must ask the classical question, "Why can't we all just get along?"
This book should be required reading for any political science class discussing the time period. Toss this book into a time capsule and whoever opens the capsule will get a laugh and an education on diversity!
