Abstract:

"This enlightening collection of original writings is one of the first attempts by Chicanos to answer the question: 'Where do we come from and where are we going?' Thirteen Chicano scholars draw upon their personal experiences and expertise to paint a vivid, colorful portrait of what it means to be a Chicano. ' We have come a long way, ' says the editor of this volume, ' from the time when the Mexicano silently accepted the stereotype drawn of him by the outsider.' In these twelve compositions, says Trejo, 'our purpose is not to talk to ourselves, but to open a dialogue among all concerned people.' The personal reactions on Chicano women's struggles, political experiences, bicultural education, and history provide a wealth of information for laymen as well as scholars. In addition, the book provides the most complete recorded definition of the Chicano Movement, what is has accomplished, and its goals for the future"--Back cover.
