About the Author:

ALFREDO MIRANDÉ is professor of sociology and chair of ethnic studies at the University of California, Riverside. He integrates his teaching and research with a limited, largely pro bono law practice, specializing in criminal law and employment discrimination. He is the author of The Stanford Law Chronicles: Doin' Time on the Farm (2005) and Gringo Justice (1987), both published by the University of Notre Dame Press.

Review:

“Rejecting the use of ‘Mexican-American’ as falsely connoting immigrant status, Mirandé emphasizes that Chicanos are an indigenous people and that their significant indio/mestizo heritage has been neglected. Attacking the immigrant group model which concentrates on acculturation and assimilation, he discusses Chicano labor, criminality, education, the church, the family, and machismo . . . an interesting and thought-provoking study.” 
  (Library Journal)

“[The Chicano Experience] offers an understanding of social, cultural, and economic forces shaping the situation of Chicanos—a context absent from much of what has been written about them.” 
  (Choice)

“[Mirandé’s] sophisticated discussion of the interrelationship of scholarly models and cultural pluralism will be of value to all students of American culture.” 
  (American Studies)

“Mirandé’s major contribution in The Chicano Experience is his proposal of a new perspective that provides for an alternative interpretation of Chicano socio-history, social status, and culture.” 
  (Journal of American Ethnic History)
