Struggling to Become American: 1899-1940

Struggling to Become American: 1899-1940

by Robin Doak

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5 Up
Topics such as U.S. policy decisions regarding Puerto Rico and Cuba, racism experienced by immigrants and those who became American when the U.S.-Mexican border shifted in 1848, Latino culture in the United States, and the repatriation of Mexicans during the Great Depression are covered in a reasonable amount of detail. Plenty of captioned photographs, political cartoons, and colorful subheads and informational sidebars keep the book visually interesting. While the author's word choice does occasionally betray a slight bias toward the plight of immigrants, the perspective is a valid and important one. This book would be a good choice for rounding out any American history collection, but will be particularly useful in communities with large Latino populations.
