Mexican Americans: Leadership, Ideology, and Identity, 1930-1960 / Edition 1by Mario T. Garcia
Pub. Date: 01/23/1991
Publisher: Yale University Press
A pioneering political and intellectual history of the Chicano leaders who emerged from the barrios of the Southwest between 1930 and 1960-Ignacio L. López, George I. Sanchez, Josefina Fierro de Bright, and others-and of their effort to capture first-class citizenship for Mexican Americans. Drawing extensively on archival material and oral history, Mario T. García discusses the key figures, organizations, and issues of the movement; in so doing he casts new light not only on Chicano history but also on the histories of American ethnicity and civil rights movements.
