Examples of how Americans reacted to Marsans as a player and a person and the prevalence of Latino stereotypes during this era are fully explored. Part biography, part sociological study, this book introduces the reader to a physically gifted player and to a young, powerful America struggling to find its own identity in its new ethnic makeup."--Jacket."@en ;
