Looking Through a Different Window

Ms. Martinez writes a chapter about the 150th Anniversary of the Bear Flag Revolt which permits others, including us Anglos, to see events from the view of Latinos and others, with both seriousness and wit. There is a charm in her words, even when pointed. It usually helps when we are given the opportunity to walk in another's shoes, if only for a few steps. William J. Trinkle----, Director, The Bear Flag Museum

Excellent! A must read!

Elizabeth Martinez has provided an insightful and touching portrait of the struggles and triumphs in the lives of "the other" in America. It is a valuable read for not only women of color but all of us. I was deeply moved by this book and highly recommend it.

A guide to a compassionate future

These essays by the legendary radical activist and prolific writer, Elizabeth Martinez, gently guide us to the path of a revolution based on compassion, equality, and justice. The book could be called the North American sequel to Eduardo Galleano's stunning "Memories" essay series. Brilliant, sparkling, funny prose, transforming the essay form to new heights. I am a historian and university professor and have adopted this text for my course, "Patterns of Immigration to the US," along with Howard Zinn's, "Peoples History of the US." The two texts make fine partners. I recommend this book to organizers, activists, teachers, students, feminists, of all colors and political leanings. You will never think quite the same after reading it.
