Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Latino Education in U.S. History is in a class by itself. No other publication in the field of Latino education to date covers such much ground, addresses some many key themes, and is so representative of regional and group issues. MacDonald should be commended for providing a broad sample of documents - letters, manifestos, reports, legal briefs, fiction, photographs, and newspaper clippings - and a solid chronological and thematic structure to capture the diversity, complexity and rich history of Latino educational issues in the U.S." - Felix V. Matos Rodriguez, Ph.D. Director Centro de Estudios Puertorriqueños Hunter College

"A stellar documentary history in every respect. Thought-provoking and vibrant, this definitive reference work is essential reading for anyone interested in Latino education, past, present, and future." - Vicki L. Ruiz, Professor of History and Chicano Latino Studies, University of California, Irvine

"Comprehensive, fascinating and insightful...MacDonald's study is well-written, richly documented, and superbly organized to illuminate the major events, issues, and educational experiences of diverse groups of Latinos and Latinas during the past five centuries. It significantly broadens our knowledge and understanding...This will definitely set a new standard for the history of education in general and for the history of Latino education in the U.S. in particular." - Guadalupe San Miguel Jr., Professor of History, University of Houston
