César Chávez : a triumph of spirit by Richard Griswold del Castillo( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,161 libraries worldwide
This biography of Chavez by Richard Griswold del Castillo and Richard A. Garcia is the first to approach Chavez's life - his courageous acts, his turning points, his many perceived personas - in the context of Chicano and American history. It reveals a shy, quiet man who was launched by events into a maelstrom of campesino strikes, religious fervor, and nonviolent battles for justice. Among his friends and supporters he counted Martin Luther King Jr., Robert Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, and millions across America who rallied to his cause. In Griswold del Castillo and Garcia's biography, Chavez's life mirrors major events in Mexican American history: Mexican immigration during the 1920s; forced repatriation in the 1930s; segregation in public schools; Mexican American contributions during World War II; the Zoot Suit Riots in Los Angeles; formation of Mexican American organizations to advance civil and political rights; the Chicano movement of the 1960s and early 1970s; the emergence of a conservative political backlash in the 1980s; and, finally, the "new immigration" in the 1990s. Cesar Chavez was touched by all these events, and his story is both private and part of a collective experience

World War II and Mexican American civil rights ( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 449 libraries worldwide
World War II marked a turning point for Mexican Americans that fundamentally changed their expectations about how they should be treated by the greater U.S. society. The experiences of fighting alongside white Americans in the military, as well as of working in factory jobs for wages equal to those of Anglo workers, made Mexican Americans less willing to tolerate the second-class citizenship that had been their lot before the war. Having proven their loyalty and "Americanness" during World War II, Mexican Americans in the postwar years wanted to have the civil rights they knew they had earned. In this book, Richard Griswold del Castillo and Richard Steele investigate how the World War II experiences of Mexican Americans galvanized their struggle for civil rights and how the U.S. government responded to the needs and aspirations of Mexican Americans. The authors demonstrate, for example, that the U.S. government "discovered" Mexican Americans during World War II and set about addressing some of their problems as a way of forestalling a sense of grievance and disaffection that might have made the Mexican American community unwilling to support the war effort. The authors also show that, as much or more than governmental programs, the personal wartime experiences of Mexican Americans formed their civil rights consciousness. The book concludes with a selection of key essays and historical documents from the World War II period that collectively gives a first-person understanding of the civil rights struggles of Mexican Americans

The power of one : the story of the Border Angels by Enrique Morones( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
"In the American Southwest and its borderlands, no other social justice advocate has made a greater impact on the lives of undocumented workers than Enrique Morones. In The Power of One, Morones tells his own story (with noted Chicano historian Richard Griswold del Castillo) and the result is a book that unfolds as the singular memoir of someone who took the chance to make a difference--a brave activist who, with his organization, the Border Angels, saves the lives of legions of sojourners, brave, desperate travelers who attempt to cross the hot, beautiful, and dangerous deserts that fuse the United States and Mexico." --
