Occupied America: A History of Chicanos, Sixth Edition
Rodolfo Acuña

Authored by Rodolfo Acuña, one of the most influential and highly-regarded scholars of Chicano history and Ethnic Studies, Occupied America is the leading textbook for Chicano history courses. Beginning with the Mesoamerican civilizations before the 1519 Spanish invitation, continuing through Mexico’s conquests as a developing nation, and ending with an examination of issues of immigration, labor, education, and equality during the last 100 years, this text serves as an ideal foundation for understanding and analyzing Chicano history. This extensively researched and passionately written text not only covers the major developments and incidents in Mexican history, but also explores the complicating factors of race, gender and class in forming Chicano identity.

New to the sixth edition

  • The entire text has been streamlined, to make it more concise, contextualized, and student-orientated, while still preserving its passionate voice.
  • Timelines at the beginning of chapters 8 through 15 help plot cause and effect and lend context to important events and eras in Chicano history.
  • “The Map Room” section at the end of the text gives students Web addresses for important maps that trace the migrations of peoples throughout the Americas.
  • Up-to-date references and new sources throughout the text encourage students and professors to engage in further scholarship.
