If anybody want the sticky cardboard stuck to this and then find out the return is nothing to earn back, then get ready to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for better understanding, September 1, 2008
This review is from: The New Americans (Hardcover)
Martinez adds detail and insight into the stories of families featured on this PBS series. The video available from PBS and his book provide an excellent combination for educators, community leaders, and the general public to better appreciate the strengths and resolve immigrants bring to this country as well as the barriers, obstacles, and prejudices they face from those whose families came to the nation in earlier times.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best in cultural criticism today, April 13, 2004
This review is from: The New Americans (Hardcover)
As an avid reader of Martinez's works, I feel that he has reached a new level with The New Americans. This book beautifully and thoughtfully weaves together the contested narratives of immigrants, works of cultural production and personal reflection into a polyvocal conversation that leaves the reader wanting more.
