Mexicans in California

Transformations and Challenges

Exploring the past, present, and future of ethnic Mexicans in California

Numbering over a third of California's population and thirteen percent of the U.S. population, people of Mexican ancestry represent a hugely complex group with a long history in the country. Contributors address a broad range of issues regarding California's ethnic Mexican population, including their concentration among the working poor and as day laborers; their participation in various sectors of the educational system; social problems such as domestic violence; their contributions to the arts, especially music; media stereotyping; and political alliances and alignments.

Contributors are Brenda D. Arellano, Leo R. Chavez, Yvette G. Flores, Ramón A. Gutiérrez, Aída Hurtado, Olga Nájera-Ramírez, Chon A. Noriega, Manuel Pastor Jr., Armida Ornelas, Russell W. Rumberger, Daniel G. Solórzano, Enriqueta Valdez Curiel, and Abel Valenzuela Jr.

"Informative and well written, this anthology contains substantive explorations of issues that deeply affect the daily lives and experience of Latino/as in the United States today."--Suzanne Oboler, founding editor of Latino Studies and coeditor in chief of the four-volume Oxford Encyclopedia on Latinos and Latinas in the United States

Ramón A. Gutiérrez is the Preston and Sterling Morton Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Chicago. Patricia Zavella is a professor of Latin American and Latino studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
