Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Rejecting the use of ‘Mexican-American’ as falsely connoting immigrant status, Mirandé emphasizes that Chicanos are an indigenous people and that their significant indio/mestizo heritage has been neglected. Attacking the immigrant group model which concentrates on
acculturation and assimilation, he discusses Chicano labor, criminality, education, the church, the family, and machismo . . . an interesting and thought-provoking study.” —Library Journal

“[The Chicano Experience] offers an understanding of social, cultural, and economic forces shaping the situation of Chicanos—a context absent from much of what has been written about them.” —Choice

“Mirandé’s major contribution in The Chicano Experience is his proposal of a new perspective that provides for an alternative interpretation of Chicano socio-history, social status, and culture.” —Journal of American Ethnic History
