By (author) Armando Navarro
Publication date:14 July 2005
Length of book:768 pages
This exciting new volume from Armando Navarro offers the most current and comprehensive political history of the Mexicano experience in the United States. He examines in-depth topics such as American political culture, electoral politics, demography, and organizational development. Viewing Mexicanos today as an occupied and colonized people, he calls for the formation of a new movement to reinvigorate the struggle for resistance and change among Mexicanos. Navarro envisions a new political and cultural landscape as the dominant Latino population 'Re-Mexicanizes' the U.S. into a more multicultural and multiethnic society. This book will be a valuable resource for political and social activists and teaching tool for political theory, Latino politics, ethnic and minority politics, race relations in the United States, and social movements.
Armando Navarro has written a sweeping panorama of the role and importance of political culture in Chicano history. It revises the general stereotype of the apolitical Mexican and scholarly documents the central role of political agency among Chicanos.
