American Guestworkers: Jamaicans and Mexicans in the U.S. Labor Market.
American Guestworkers: Jamaicans and Mexicans in the U.S. Labor Market cover image By David Griffith.
University Park, PA: Pennsylvania State University Press, ©2006.
Series: Rural Studies Series.
"The H-2 program, originally based in Florida, is the longest running labor-importation program in the country. Over the course of a quarter-century of research, Griffith studied rural labor processes and their national and international effects. In this book, he examines the socioeconomic effects of the H-2 program on both the areas where the laborers work and the areas they are from, and, taking a uniquely humanitarian stance, he considers the effects of the program on the laborers themselves."

Brown, Not White: School Integration and the Chicano Movement in Houston.
Brown, Not White: School Integration and the Chicano Movement in Houston cover image By Guadalupe San Miguel, Jr.
College Station, TX: Texas A&M University Press, ©2001.
Series: University of Houston series in Mexican American studies; no. 3.
"Strikes, boycotts, rallies, negotiations, and litigation marked the efforts of Mexican-origin community members to achieve educational opportunities and oppose discrimination in Houston schools in the early 1970s. The Houston Independent School District sparked these responses because it circumvented a court order to desegregate by classifying Mexican American children as "white" and integrating them with African American children - leaving Anglos in segregated schools. In Brown, Not White, Guadalupe San Miguel, Jr., traces the evolution of the community's political activism in education during the Chicano Movement era of the early 1970s. San Miguel also identifies the important implications of this struggle for Mexican Americans and for public education. The political mobilization in Houston signaled a shift in the activist community's identity from the assimilationist "Mexican American Generation" to the rising Chicano Movement with its "nationalist" ideology. It also introduced Mexican American interests into educational policy making in general and into the national desegregation struggles in particular. This important study will engage those interested in public school policy as well as scholars of Mexican American history and the history of desegregation in America." (publisher's description)

Cesar Chavez and the Common Sense of Nonviolence.
By José-Antonio Orosco.
Cesar Chavez and the Common Sense of Nonviolence cover image Albuquerque, NM: University of New Mexico Press, 2008.
"Cesar Chavez has long been heralded for his personal practice of nonviolent resistance in struggles against social, racial, and labor injustices. However, the words of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. have long overshadowed Chavez's contributions to the theory of nonviolence. The author seeks to elevate Chavez as an original thinker, providing an analysis of what Chavez called "the common sense of nonviolence." By engaging Chavez in dialogue with a variety of political theorists and philosophers, he demonstrates how Chavez developed distinct ideas about nonviolent theory that are timely for dealing with today's social and political issues, including racism, sexism, immigration, globalization, and political violence."

Chicano Students and the Courts: The Mexican American Legal Struggle for Educational Equality.
By Richard R. Valencia.
Chicano Students and the Courts: The Mexican American Legal Struggle for Educational Equality cover image New York, NY: New York University Press, ©2008.
Series: Critical America.
"Chicano Students and the Courts engages the many areas that have spurred Mexican Americans to legal battle, including school segregation, financing, special education, bilingual education, school closures, undocumented students, higher education financing, and high-stakes testing, ultimately situating these legal efforts in the broader scope of the Mexican American community's overall struggle for the right to an equal education. Extensively researched, and written by an author with first-hand experience in the courtroom as an expert witness in Mexican American education cases, this volume is the first to provide an in-depth understanding of the intersection of litigation and education vis-à-vis Mexican Americans."

Colonias in Arizona and New Mexico: Border Poverty and Community Development Solutions.
Colonias in Arizona and New Mexico: Border Poverty and Community Development Solutions cover image By Adrian X. Esparza and Angela J. Donelson.
Tucson, AZ: University of Arizona Press, ©2008.
"There are approximately half a million people living in 227 officially designated colonias in southern Arizona and New Mexico. These border communities are characterized by poor-quality housing, a lack of infrastructure (paved roads, water and sewer systems, and electricity), high levels of poverty and unemployment, and a disproportionate concentration of Hispanics. These colonias comprise one of the country's largest pockets of poverty. Even so, little is known about these towns or the people who live in them. This book provides the first comprehensive treatment of Arizona and New Mexico colonias, with the aim of increasing their visibility and promoting community development. Beginning with an examination of the origins of border region settlement and the emergence of colonias in southern Arizona and New Mexico in the late 1800s, the book then turns to an assessment of current social, economic, and housing conditions. The authors also examine how Mexico's recent economic crises and U.S. immigration and border security policies have shaped the quality of life in colonias, and they evaluate recent community development initiatives. By examining the challenges and successes of these recent efforts, the authors are able to provide a generalized plan for community development. Balancing analyses of these communities with a review of the positive steps taken to improve the quality of life of their inhabitants, Colonias in Arizona and New Mexico is an indispensable tool for anyone interested in public policy or immigration issues."

Series: Blackwell Companions in Cultural Studies; 14.
"A Companion to Latina/o Studies is a collection of 45 original essays written by leading scholars in the Latina/o studies field. These writers explore themes spanning great depths of creative scholarship, and the essays cover everything from theories of latinisimo, immigration, education, language and religion; to discussions on political and economic perspectives, and race, class, and gender-sexuality. The volume also explores broader questions encompassing history, identity, public representations, and cultural expression within the Latino community. The racialization of African and Native American heritages is examined as well.The Companion provides thoughtful insights into what is now undeniably the largest minority in the United States, and is an essential resource for all scholars in the growing field of Latina/o Studies."

From Out of the Shadows: Mexican Women in Twentieth-Century America, 10th anniversary edition.
From Out of the Shadows: Mexican Women in Twentieth-Century America cover image By Vicki L. Ruiz.
New York, NY: Oxford University Press, 2008.
"From Out of the Shadows was the first full study of Mexican-American women in the twentieth century. Beginning with the first wave of Mexican women crossing the border early in the century, historian Vicki L. Ruiz reveals the struggles they have faced and the communities they have built. In a narrative enhanced by interviews and personal stories, she shows how from labor camps, boxcar settlements, and urban barrios, Mexican women nurtured families, worked for wages, built extended networks, and participated in community associations--efforts that helped Mexican Americans find their own place in America. She also narrates the tensions that arose between generations, as the parents tried to rein in young daughters eager to adopt American ways. Finally, the book highlights the various forms of political protest initiated by Mexican-American women, including civil rights activity and protests against the war in Vietnam. For this new edition of From Out of the Shadows, Ruiz has written an afterword that continues the story of the Mexicana experience in the United States, as well as outlines new additions to the growing field of Latina history."

Latinas in the United States: A Historical Encyclopedia.
Latinas in the United States: A Historical Encyclopedia cover image Edited by Vicki L. Ruiz and Virginia Sánchez Korrol.
Bloomington, IN: Indiana University Press, ©2006.
Three volumes.
"Latinas in the United States: A Historical Encyclopedia records the contribution of women of Latin American birth or heritage to the economic and cultural development of the United States. The encyclopedia, edited by Vicki L. Ruiz and Virginia Sanchez Korrol, is the first comprehensive gathering of scholarship on Latinas. This encyclopedia will serve as an essential reference for decades to come.
In more than 580 entries, the historical and cultural narratives of Latinas come to life. From mestizo settlement, pioneer life, and diasporic communities, the encyclopedia details the contributions of women as settlers, comadres, and landowners, as organizers and nuns. More than 200 scholars explore the experiences of Latinas during and after EuroAmerican colonization and conquest; the early-19th-century migration of Puerto Ricans and Cubans; 20th-century issues of migration, cultural tradition, labor, gender roles, community organization, and politics; and much more. Individual biographical entries profile women who have left their mark on the historical and cultural landscape.
With more than 300 photographs, this three-volume encyclopedia offers a mosaic of historical experiences, detailing how Latinas have shaped their own lives, cultures, and communities through mutual assistance and collective action, while confronting the pressures of colonialism, racism, discrimination, sexism, and poverty."

The Latino Threat: Constructing Immigrants, Citizens, and the Nation.
Latino Threat: Constructing Immigrants, Citizens, and the Nation cover image By Leo Ralph Chavez.
Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press, ©2008.
"From volunteers ready to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border to the hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children who have marched in support of immigrant rights, the United States has witnessed a surge of involvement in immigration activism. In The Latino Threat, Leo R. Chavez critically investigates the media stories about and recent experiences of immigrants to show how prejudices and stereotypes have been used to malign an entire immigrant population--and to define what it means to be an American.
Pundits--and the media at large--nurture and perpetuate the notion that Latinos, particularly Mexicans, are an invading force bent on reconquering land once considered their own. Through a perceived refusal to learn English and an "out of control" birthrate, many say that Latinos are destroying the American way of life. But Chavez questions these assumptions and offers facts to counter the myth that Latinos are a threat to the security and prosperity of our nation.
His breakdown of the "Latino threat" contests this myth's basic tenets, challenging such well-known authors as Samuel Huntington, Pat Buchanan, and Peter Brimelow. Chavez concludes that citizenship is not just about legal definitions, but about participation in society. Deeply resonant in today's atmosphere of exclusion, Chavez's insights offer an alternative and optimistic view of the vitality and future of our country." (publisher's description)

Latino Writers and Journalists.
By Jamie Martinez Wood.
Latino Writers and Journalists cover image New York, NY: Facts On File, ©2007.
Series: Facts on File Library of American History.
"Fostering creativity due to adversity or poverty or by breaking rules of stoic propriety, the resiliency and spirit of Latino writers, journalists, and editors bring pride and significance to their heritage. Since European colonization of what would become the United States began in 1542, Latinos have documented both their experiences and the experiences of others. Latino Writers and Journalists profiles 151 Latino Americans, such as Ruben Martinez, Laura Esquivel, and Isabel Allende. This exciting volume profiles the valor and tenacity of the Latino experience - from daily life to fighting prejudice and small-mindedness, teaching children pride in La Raza, and the need for assimilation. Filled with emotion and intelligence, the stories of Latino writers and journalists speak of courage and a love of life as they claim their rightful place in literature and journalism. Entries in this biographical volume focus on poets, playwrights, screenwriters, children's book authors, journalists, editors, publishers, and others who have worked to advance the role of Latinos in this field. Whether an individual was born in the United States or emigrated from such countries as Mexico, Chile, Ecuador, or Spain, each Latino profiled has made significant contributions to the fields of writing and journalism in the United States. Additional features include a bibliography that provides listings of anthologies, biographies, critical studies, and literary movements pertaining to Latino writers and journalists. One subject index allows the reader to search by such subjects as "Chicano movement" and "magical realism." Other indexes organize subjects by their year of birth and by their ethnicity. This entertaining volume is enhanced throughout by numerous black-and-white photographs of the Latino writers and journalists presented." (publisher's description)

Latinos and American Law: Landmark Supreme Court Cases.
Latinos and American Law: Landmark Supreme Court Cases cover image By Carlos R. Soltero.
Austin, TX: University of Texas Press, 2006.
"To achieve justice and equal protection under the law, Latinos have turned to the U.S. court system to assert and defend their rights. Some of these cases have reached the United States Supreme Court, whose rulings over more than a century have both expanded and restricted the legal rights of Latinos, creating a complex terrain of power relations between the U.S. government and the country's now-largest ethnic minority. To map this legal landscape, Latinos and American Law examines fourteen landmark Supreme Court cases that have significantly affected Latino rights, from Botiller v. Dominguez in 1889 to Alexander v. Sandoval in 2001. Carlos Soltero organizes his study chronologically, looking at one or more decisions handed down by the Fuller Court (1888-1910), the Taft Court (1921-1930), the Warren Court (1953-1969), the Burger Court (1969-1986), and the Rehnquist Court (1986-2005). For each case, he opens with historical and legal background on the issues involved and then thoroughly discusses the opinion(s) rendered by the justices. He also offers an analysis of each decision's significance, as well as subsequent developments that have affected its impact. Through these case studies, Soltero demonstrates that in dealing with Latinos over issues such as education, the administration of criminal justice, voting rights, employment, and immigration, the Supreme Court has more often mirrored, rather than led, the attitudes and politics of the larger U.S. society."

The Magic Curtain: The Mexican-American Border in Fiction, Film, and Song.
Magic Curtain: The Mexican-American Border in Fiction, Film, and Song cover image By Thomas Torrans.
Fort Worth, TX: Texas Christian University Press, ©2002.
"This text looks at the border in fiction, film and song. Borderlands - especially the United States-Mexico borderland - have long served as backgrounds for depicting social instability. And borders, or magic curtains, have readily been fashioned into exotic backdrops for films, novels, ballads, and tales in which characters shift easily from one culture to another. Film epitomizes the escape across the magic curtain. For example "The Getaway" shows two characters, Carol and Doc, not only manage the great escape with a satchel full of stolen money, they do it after fleeing the border after a near brush with death. Numerous ballads celebrate incidents befalling those running afoul of the law - from bandits to smugglers, large landholders and Texas rangers." (publisher's description)

Making Ends Meet: Income-Generating Strategies among Mexican Immigrants cover image By Socorro Torres Sarmiento.
New York, NY: LFB Scholarly Pub. LLC, 2002.
Series: New Americans (LFB Scholarly Publishing LLC).
"Using ethnographic interviews, Sarmiento studies how globalization affects ordinary Mexican American immigrants, shaping their families and daily lives. Even as families are divided by borders, they try to remain cohesive units. Globalization challenges immigrants to restructure their families, gender roles, and even their political boundaries. The unstable working conditions of immigrant men are decisive for the form in which families organize their income-generating strategies. However, women are key to the family economy in that they subsidize low wages through paid and unpaid work on both sides of the border." (publisher's description)

Manifest Destinies: The Making of the Mexican American Race.
Manifest Destinies: The Making of the Mexican American Race cover image By Laura E. Gómez.
New York, NY: New York University, ©2007.
"In both the historic record and the popular imagination, the story of nineteenth-century westward expansion in America has been characterized by notions of annexation rather than colonialism, of opening rather than conquering, and of settling unpopulated lands rather than displacing existing populations.
Using the territory that is now New Mexico as a case study, Manifest Destinies traces the origins of Mexican Americans as a racial group in the United States, paying particular attention to shifting meanings of race and law in the nineteenth century.
Laura E. Gómez explores the central paradox of Mexican American racial status as entailing the law's designation of Mexican Americans as "white" and their simultaneous social position as non-white in American society. She tells a neglected story of conflict, conquest, cooperation, and competition among Mexicans, Indians, and Euro-Americans, the region's three main populations who were the key architects and victims of the laws that dictated what one's race was and how people would be treated by the law according to one's race.
Gómez's path breaking work--spanning the disciplines of law, history, and sociology--reveals how the construction of Mexicans as an American racial group proved central to the larger process of restructuring the American racial order from the Mexican War (1846-48) to the early twentieth century. The emphasis on white-over-black relations during this period has obscured the significant role played by the doctrine of Manifest Destiny and the colonization of northern Mexico in the racial subordination of black Americans."

Married to a Daughter of the Land: Spanish-Mexican Women and Interethnic Marriage in California, 1820-1880.
Married to a Daughter of the Land: Spanish-Mexican Women and Interethnic Marriage in California, 1820-1880 cover image By María Raquél Casas.
Reno, NV: University of Nevada Press, ©2007.
"Until recently, most studies of the colonial period of the American West have focused on the activities and agency of men. Now, historian María Raquél Casas examines the role of Spanish-Mexican women in the development of California. She finds that, far from being pawns in a male-dominated society, Californianas of all classes were often active and determined creators of their own destinies, finding ways to choose their mates, to leave unsatisfactory marriages, and to maintain themselves economically.
Using a wide range of sources in English and Spanish, Casas unveils a picture of women's lives in these critical decades of California's history. She shows how many Spanish-Mexican women negotiated the precarious boundaries of gender and race to choose Euro-American husbands, and what this intermarriage meant to the individuals involved and to the larger multiracial society evolving from California's rich Hispanic and Indian past. Casas's discussion ranges from California's burgeoning economy to the intimacies of private households and ethnically mixed families. Here we discover the actions of real women of all classes as they shaped their own identities.
Married to a Daughter of the Land is a significant and fascinating contribution to the history of women in the American West and to our understanding of the complex role of gender, race, and class in the Borderlands of the Southwest." (publisher's description)

Mexican American Literature: The Politics of Identity.
Mexican American Literature: The Politics of Identity cover image By Elizabeth Jacobs.
London, UK; New York, NY: Routledge, 2006.
Series: Routledge Transatlantic Perspectives on American Literature; 5.
"Mexican American Literature is the first book length study to focus on what is arguably the most important period in the development of Mexican American literature, the Chicano Movement of the 1960s. It offers an extended analysis of Chicano and Chicana identity politics over several decades through readings of some of the major works of contemporary Mexican American literature while exploring the Movement's historical, political and conceptual effects. The book examines the identity of politics in Chicano and Chicana literary and political texts dating from the 1960s to the present day. Offering original readings of the works of several major figures of the Chicano Movement and the canon of contemporary Chicana writing, it brings together a broad range of legal, political, geographic and cultural concerns. Its approach it also covers a large part of the historical map of the Mexican American experience in the United States from colonization and annexation, to civil rights and contemporary developments in Chicano and Chicana political identity. Mexican American Literature is an important contribution to the study of Mexican American literature. The careful consideration given to the politics of identity in a number of key literary works illuminates the way in which literature reflects and incorporates political ideology in a way no other critical work on this subject does. Crossing several disciplinary boudaries, this book will be of use to those studying literature, history, feminism and politics." (publisher's description)

Operation Gatekeeper: The Rise of the "Illegal Alien" and the Making of the U.S.-Mexico Boundary.
Operation Gatekeeper: The Rise of the 'Illegal Alien' and the Making of the U.S.-Mexico Boundary cover image By Joseph Nevins.
New York, NY: Routledge, 2002.
"In 1994, the INS launched Operation Gatekeeper, the Clinton administration's drastic effort to regain control of the U.S.-Mexico border. However, even as miles of new fence and hundreds of trained agents were added, the border was enjoying unprecedented economic growth. As Joseph Nevins details in this book, the effort has failed to significantly reduce unauthorized immigration, but has undoubtedly contributed to the hardship, and sometimes death, for many unauthorized border crossers. With a journalist's eye for detail, Nevins provides an immensely readable account of what has become an increasingly central concern for developed nations: keeping third world immigrants out."

Tejano Proud : Tex-Mex Music in the Twentieth Century.
Tejano Proud : Tex-Mex Music in the Twentieth Century cover image By Guadalupe San Miguel, Jr.
College Station, TX: Texas A&M University Press, ©2002.
Series: Fronteras series; no. 1.
"From the dance halls to the main stage, from small town Texas to the big cities, "musica tejana" is rapidly becoming known as a rich and vibrant form of American music. The 20th century has seen Texas Mexican music balance between the traditional and the modern, remaining rooted in Mexico while taking nourishment from Africa, Europe, the Caribbean and the United States. In this book the author provides a history of the evolution of "musica tejana" - its ups and downs and its importance to Mexican Texas culture in the context of Anglo-Mexican relations. He also discusses the more recent development of the Tejano recording industry and the role women have begun to play in an industry long dominated by men." (publisher's description)

Undocumented Immigrants and Higher Education: Sí Se Puede!
Undocumented Immigrants and Higher Education: Sí Se Puede! cover image By Alejandra Rincón.
New York, NY: LFB Scholarly Pub., 2008.
Series: New Americans: Recent Immigration and American Society.
"Rincón reviews the struggle by undocumented immigrant students to gain access to college by paying in-state tuition rates. These efforts, which have been successful in ten states, can be characterized as a human and civil rights struggle based on the fundamental premise that no group should be subjected to discrimination. Undocumented students seek equality under the law while affirming their humanity and thus their rights as human beings. Undocumented immigrants seek to overturn government and media images that portray them as aliens and "illegals," devoid of all rights simply because they are working and living in a country other than the one in which they were born."

Whitewashed Adobe: The Rise of Los Angeles and the Remaking of its Mexican Past.
Whitewashed Adobe: The Rise of Los Angeles and the Remaking of its Mexican Past cover image By William Francis Deverell.
Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, ©2004.
"Chronicling the rise of Los Angeles through shifting ideas of race and ethnicity, William Deverell offers a unique perspective on how the city grew and changed. Whitewashed Adobe considers six different developments in the history of the city--including the cementing of the Los Angeles River, the outbreak of bubonic plague in 1924, and the evolution of America's largest brickyard in the 1920s. In an absorbing narrative supported by a number of previously unpublished period photographs, Deverell shows how a city that was once part of Mexico itself came of age through appropriating--and even obliterating--the region's connections to Mexican places and people.
Deverell portrays Los Angeles during the 1850s as a city seething with racial enmity due to the recent war with Mexico. He explains how, within a generation, the city's business interests, looking for a commercially viable way to establish urban identity, borrowed Mexican cultural traditions and put on a carnival called La Fiesta de Los Angeles. He analyzes the subtle ways in which ethnicity came to bear on efforts to corral the unpredictable Los Angeles River and shows how the resident Mexican population was put to work fashioning the modern metropolis. He discusses how Los Angeles responded to the nation's last major outbreak of bubonic plague and concludes by considering the Mission Play, a famed drama tied to regional assumptions about history, progress, and ethnicity. Taking all of these elements into consideration, Whitewashed Adobe uncovers an urban identity--and the power structure that fostered it--with far-reaching implications for contemporary Los Angeles."
