“ . . . The author succeeds in providing us with a first-rate portrayal of that generation. . . . This is the first political study on this period of Mexican American history, and the book has no competitors . . . a unique and outstanding book. It is the author’s very clear explanation of the historical background, upbringing, ideological mindset, and pursued goals of these leaders that permits scholars to fill the gap in Tejano history between approximately 1960 and 1966. Kudos to the author.”--Arnold De Leon, Professor, Angelo State University
