The Tejano Diaspora: Mexican Americanism and Ethnic Politics in Texas and Wisconsin

Overview

Rodriguez examines how Chicano political and social movements developed at both ends of the migratory labor network that flowed between Crystal City, Texas, and Wisconsin during the 1960s and 1970s.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rodriquez was able to make connections between and across seemingly disparate historical periods, topics, and regions, an accomplishment which, in turn, expands the literature on Mexican American history in Texas."—Journal of South Texas

"A compelling, well-written, nuanced study."—Journal of American History

"In The Tejano Diaspora, [Rodriguez] has successfully given testament to the many people, unions, government agencies, and conflicts that contributed to the rise of Mexican American political power throughout the U.S., thereby filling a large gap in the fields of U.S. labor, civil rights, and Mexican American histories."—Texas Books in Review

"Brings new insight to the Chicano movement."—Journal of Southern History

"Elucidating. . . . [A] provocative treatment of the Tejano diaspora."—Southwestern Historical Quarterly

"Important . . . . Rodriguez's book has national implications for U.S. civil rights history. The links between the Midwest and Chicano activism are now clear."—American Historical Review

"Read this book. Highly recommended. All levels/libraries."—Choice

"Rodriquez reveals an emergent ethnic identity, discovers an overlooked youth movement, and interrogates the meanings of American citizenship."—Pluma Fronteriza Blog
