    schema:description ""Paredes's name will continue to resonate in Mexican American studies, American folklore, and anthropology, and his work will continue to be studied. This book makes a strong case for the lasting importance of Paredes's work, especially for a new generation of scholars."--Jacket."@en ;
    schema:description ""Although he surveys all of Paredes's work, Morin focuses most heavily on the masterpiece, With a Pistol in His Hand. It is in this book that Morin sees Paredes's innovative interdisciplinary approach most effectively expressed. Dealing as he did with a people at the intersection of cultures, Paredes considered the intersection of disciplines a necessary focus for clear understanding. Morin traces the evolution of Paredes's thought and his battles to create a legitimate home for his approach at the University of Texas." "A voice for Chicano consciousness in the late 1960s and thereafter, Paredes championed Mexican American studies and encouraged a generation of scholars to consider this culture a legitimate topic for research. Urging the application of context to the understanding of oral texts, he challenged then-current methods of folklore and anthropological study in general.""@en ;
