Latinos in the U.S. are a major political, economic, and cultural force which is changing the national identity of this country. In fact, statistics show that by the year 2100, half of the United States population may be Latino. And two of every three of America's Latinos are Mexican. Mexicans are the oldest settelers of the United States, and they are also the nation's largest group of recent immigrant arrivals. Their population is increasing faster than that of all other Latino groups combined. The growing importance of this minority group, which will be felt strongly in twenty-first century America, calls for a fresh assessment of Mexican American history.

"Crucible of Struggle remains a landmark book for readers interested in Mexican American, labor, and civil rights histories in the United States. Vargas's detailed and powerful account reveals how working people have long fought for dignity and rights, and his final chapter now traces the legacies of those past struggles for our own time. This groundbreaking work of analysis charts an important path for scholars, policymakers, and students."--Stephen Pitti, Yale University
