It came in great condition even though it was a used textbook. a little watered damage but nothing that would interfere with the actual text in the book. the book itself is great to have if you're interested in Chicano history, it goes into great detail through different time periods. a must have for anyone interested in Chicano culture and history.

Long-winded and monotonous which is sad because the subject matter is very important history that every American needs to know.

Armando Navarro has written a comprehensive political history of the Mexicano in American society. It is difficult reading for some (see other reviews), yet no legitimate historian can argue with the research, the insights and the accuracy of much of what is said here. Rather than a "patriotic" or simply an "adversarial history", Navarro has written a nuanced analysis of what it has been to be Mexican in American society. While some may disagree with his recommendations, they will be hard put to find a better chronicling of this history. Navarro will rank among the best of U.S. scholars of color, and will be known for a long time as one of the most prolific and influential Chicano scholars of all time. Move over Norm Chomsky, Howard Zinn and Rudy Acuna.

Navarro predicts that by 2015 half of California will be Brown. By 2025 half of the southwest is going to be Brown. He states that we might have to change the White House to the Brown House. This book underlynies the policital forces that prevent and have prevented Mexicans from taking polictical control.

I am a Chicano and I am insulted by this garbage. It is not what we Mexican American really believe. The author must not be very educated. He is clearly a biggot. Is he really a professor?
