I received the book quickly and when it finally go here it was in perfect condition. It was more than I expected.


I like this book better than "The Course of Mexican History", which was also required for my class. It looks like a bunch of articles but read like a textbook. Black and white print. Nicely organized sections. A rather interesting read that shows you both sides of Mexican and American mistreatment, instead of painting one side as the villain.


It was a great buy for me. they were in constant communication with me and i loved the book


I bought this for a graduate course in Diversity and Oppression. I've always been pretty well versed in the African American civil rights movement, but interestingly, not in the Mexican American movement. Really informative. This info should be in high school history texts.

The long awaited book on Chicano history is finally here!

Chicano!: The History of the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement records with power the history of chicana/os in the U.S. from various vantage points: sociology, literature, anthropology, statistics, etc. This work textualizes the trauma experienced by Mexican American peoples attempting to assert an individual and collective identity in the land that was once theirs--Aztlan--and which continues to be so in spirit. The Chicana/o "experience," this book argues, is much more complex than the history that many have written, and goes beyond the hyphen; it is hybrid in many ways. The label "chicano" for example, goes beyond "Mexican-American." In Drink Cultura, Burciaga explains what this book argues throughout its pages: "Mexico never left the Southwest, it just learned English" (55)
