Editorial Reviews

Review

Important . . . . Rodriguez's book has national implications for U.S. civil rights history. The links between the Midwest and Chicano activism are now clear.--American Historical Review

A compelling, well-written, nuanced study.--Journal of American History

Rodriquez reveals an emergent ethnic identity, discovers an overlooked youth movement, and interrogates the meanings of American citizenship.--Pluma Fronteriza Blog

Elucidating. . . . [A] provocative treatment of the Tejano diaspora.--Southwestern Historical Quarterly

Rodriquez was able to make connections between and across seemingly disparate historical periods, topics, and regions, an accomplishment which, in turn, expands the literature on Mexican American history in Texas.--Journal of South Texas

Brings new insight to the Chicano movement.--Journal of Southern History

In The Tejano Diaspora, [Rodriguez] has successfully given testament to the many people, unions, government agencies, and conflicts that contributed to the rise of Mexican American political power throughout the U.S., thereby filling a large gap in the fields of U.S. labor, civil rights, and Mexican American histories.--Texas Books in Review

Read this book. Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.--Choice

Review

No extant work portrays and documents the links between the migrant phenomenon and political activism in Texas and the Midwest so thoroughly as The Tejano Diaspora. This original and important story is one of the finest scholarly studies to date of the Chicano movement.--Dionicio Valdes, Michigan State University

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great book, great topic, but no page numbers in the kindle edition. How am I supposed to cite this text? Publishers PLEASE include page numbers. Otherwise, this book is somewhat useless.
