"Valdez confronts the existing literature on 'ethnic entrepreneurship,' finds it wanting, and seeks to supplant it with an account of business formation more appropriate to the complexities of race, class, and gender in the United States." -- Alfonso Morales, University of Wisconsin, Madison
"Valdez shows how women and minority entrepreneurs face greater challenges in establishing their businesses, especially when they come from lower socio-economic classes...Although entrepreneurialism holds the promise of 'making it' in America, differences persist among Whites, Latino/as, and Blacks." -- Joe Kutchera, The Huffington Post
Valdez shows that entrepreneurs who run restaurants are deeply stratified along lines of class, gender, and national origin-- even when they share the same ethnicity or race...many of those who are most committed to the American dream of entrepreneurship are exactly those who are most excluded from its realization. -- Contexts Magazine
