    A moderately useful survey of the Chicano movement with a strongly Trotskyist and feminist perspective. I respect the authors' willingness to forthrightly offer their own analysis and opinions, but don't like the analysis.

    this book has really amazing history of the [email protected] movement. it doesn't hold back in its criticisms of Stalinists in the movement, sexism and cultural nationalism, even talking about the work of Cesar Chavez and his anti-immigrant tendencies (calling la migra on some folks for "stealing jobs", wtf!?). a lot of really interesting labor history- with stuff you don't read about in school including a lot of labor victories(!) it has opened my eyes and i look forward to referencing and re-reading it this book has really amazing history of the [email protected] movement. it doesn't hold back in its criticisms of Stalinists in the movement, sexism and cultural nationalism, even talking about the work of Cesar Chavez and his anti-immigrant tendencies (calling la migra on some folks for "stealing jobs", wtf!?). a lot of really interesting labor history- with stuff you don't read about in school including a lot of labor victories(!) it has opened my eyes and i look forward to referencing and re-reading it throughout my revolutionary career.
