This book deals with a broad range of social issues facing Mexican-origin people in the United States. The studies presented in this volume are brought together by two main themes: (1) social inequalities-cultural, educational, and economic-endured by the Chicano/Mexicano community in the United States and (2) the community's efforts to eradicate the source of those inequalities.

The second edition of Chicanas and Chicanos in Contemporary Society takes into consideration the most recent demographic changes affecting the Chicano/Mexicano people. With one-third of persons of Mexican descent under the age of fifteen, many of the challenges center on the current well-being of children and their future prospects. Unlike any other book in the market, several chapters closely examine issues related to children and youth, with particular attention given to children's ethnic identity, schooling practices, and educational policies. Two additional features set this book apart from other books. First, it includes new chapters focused on Chicana/Mexicana mothers, including adolescent mothers, interactions with their children and their efforts to reform schools. Second, it has contributions that analyze relations between Mexican immigrants and their coethnics born in the United States.

The studies offered in this volume employ multiple theoretical perspectives and research methods. The studies invoke theories from social science disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, and psychology. Contributors use a variety of analytical strategies, including ethnographic methods and quantitative analysis.

From the Publisher:

- provides most up-to-date information on changes in the population of Mexican origin in the United States, including growth and geographic distribution - several chapters focus on Chicano/Mexican children, a neglected group in most other works - several chapters examine Chicana/Mexicana mothers' interactions with their children, including teen mothers - several chapters analyze relations between Mexican immigrants and their U.S.-born peers. - contributors use a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches

From the Inside Flap:

"The second edition of Roberto De Anda's CHICANAS AND CHICANOS IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY successfully brings together recent research by young scholars focusing on key characteristics of the Mexican origin population in the United States. This collection treats all the issues essential to the curriculum and captures the excitement of Chicana/o Studies with readings that include multiple theoretical perspectives and research methods. I enthusiastically recommend this book as a useful text for both introductory undergraduate courses and upper division offerings." --Francisco Balderrama, Ph.D., Professor of History and Chicano Studies at California State University, Los Angeles

"With the increasing number of Chicano/a and Latino/a communities throughout the U.S., and the subsequent increase in Chicana/o and Latina/o studies courses in many universities, comes the need for a reader that addresses the cultural, educational, and economic inequalities faced by Mexican-origin and Latino people in the U.S. The second edition of Roberto De Anda's CHICANAS AND CHICANOS IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY is such a reader. This book addresses the key issues of underemployment and the working poor in Latino communities while simultaneously providing positive examples of how Chicanos/as and Latinos/as are overcoming these inequalities by combining aspects of tradition with new strategies in the social, political, and economic institutional realms. This book will be indispensable to courses in Latina/o and Chicana/o Studies, Race and Ethnicity, and diversity/multiculturalism." --José Z. Calderón, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology and Chicano Studies at Pitzer College
