9780268010232: Gringo Justice

The Chicano Experience sets forth a comprehensive framework for Chicano sociology that corrects the biases and misconceptions of prevailing approaches and more accurately reflects the Chicano worldview. In addition to providing considerable insight into Chicano culture in America, Mirandé's study contributes to the broader movement among social scientists toward greater sensitivity to indigenous cultural paradigms.

About the Author:

Alfredo Mirandé is professor of sociology and chair of ethnic studies at the University of California, Riverside. He is the author of The Stanford Law Chronicles: Doin’ Time on the Farm (2005) and Chicano Experience: An Alternative Perspective (1985), both published by the University of Notre Dame Press.

Review:

"Mirandé examines the relationship of the legal system to Chicanos, emphasizing its role in the mobilization of bias against Chicanos as well as the expropriation of their land. Extensive attention is given to the development of the bandito and gang images and the use, in changing forms, of these stereotypes to mobilize anti-Chicano relations. The book is detailed and highly instructive in the specific legal means used to deprive Chicanos of their Mexican land grants following the U.S. conquest of Mexican territory. . . . More than 325 references provide an excellent overview of materials on Chicano history and Anglo-Chicano relations, and are drawn from a wide variety of academic, historical, and popular writings on these topics."

"Gringo Justice should become part of the required reading list in Chicano Studies classes." —Aztlan



"Mirandé examines the relationship of the legal system to Chicanos, emphasizing its role in the mobilization of bias against Chicanos as well as the expropriation of their land. Extensive attention is given to the development of the ‘bandito’ and gang images and the use, in changing forms, of these stereotypes to mobilize anti-Chicano relations. The book is detailed and highly instructive in the specific legal means used to deprive Chicanos of their Mexican land grants following the U.S. conquest of Mexican territory. . . . More than 325 references provide an excellent overview of materials on Chicano history and Anglo-Chicano relations, and are drawn from a wide variety of academic, historical, and popular writings on these topics."

(Choice)

"[This is] seminal work that will, no doubt, prompt further discussion and investigation. . . . Mirande’s . . . treatment of the technique of mobilization of bias and the role of the gangs in Chicano society and his ideas concerning theoretical perspectives for studying the Chicano are both provocative and compelling."

(Journal of American Ethnic History)

Book Description University of Notre Dame Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 274 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.8in. x 0.8in.Gringo Justice is a seminal work that will, no doubt, prompt further discussion and investigation. Mirands primary point of contention is that Anglo-American courts, police, the media, and the social sciences have presented negative images of Chicano society, particularly its barrio youth, through the use of a subtle but powerful technique called the mobilization of bias. The technique directs the emphasis away from the exploitation and subordination of the Chicano toward the problems and inadequacies of the barrio by portraying Chicanos as violent and criminal. . . . The end result is a double standard of justice in which one system is applied to Anglo-American society, another to Chicano. When Chicanos internalize the negative images and begin to blame themselves and their culture for their subordination, the mobilization of bias has come full circle. . . . Mirands treatment of the technique of mobilization of bias and the role of the gangs in Chicano society and his ideas concerning theoretical perspectives for studying the Chicano are both provocative and compelling. --Journal of American Ethnic History This item ships from multiple locations.
