Occupied America: A History of Chicanos / Edition 4by Rodolfo Acuna
Pub. Date: 12/22/1999
Drawing its title from the U.S. annexation of half of the Republic of Mexico in the early part of the 19th century, this study tells the story of Mexican-Americans in the U.S., although (of course) frequent references to developments in Mexico are included. As is indicated by the title, the focus of the narrative is on the resistance strategies (cultural, economic, and political) that Chicanos/as adopted against a colonial power. Annotation c.
