Literary Nonfiction. Political Science. Latino/Latina Studies. LGBT Studies. A lively and accessible investigation of Mexican American militancy from the U.S. occupation of Northern Mexico in the 19th century to civil rights struggles in the present era. The authors describe monumental labor battles, survey the Raza youth movement, focus attention on the role of women, and examine issues such as police brutality, the emergence of Chicana/o lesbians and gays, and the role of radical organizations, while also exploring hotly debated theories about the source of discrimination against Chicanos. VIVA LA RAZA reveals the workings of race and nationality in the United States in relation to people of Mexican ancestry, a group that is too little understood though its members comprise this country's second largest population of people of color.

About the Author:

Yolanda Alaniz grew up working in the fields of Eastern Washington. After moving to Seattle to attend college, she was active in the Chicano movement, union mobilizations, and early feminist organizing. She graduated with a degree in Editorial Journalism and, after moving to Los Angeles, received a Master s Degree in Library Information Studies. She is co-editor, with Nellie Wong, of the anthology Voices of Color.

Megan Cornish is a longtime activist for women s rights and racial justice, and an avid student and teacher of Marxist theory. She was one of the first women in the country to become a journey-level worker in the utility electrical trades. She and Heidi Durham co-wrote Women Workers: Sparkplugs of Labor, a study of the political impact of the changing demographics of the U.S. labor force.

Review:

Change cannot come about without passionate feelings. Viva la Raza critiques the past and does not go along with the road map. It is an honest book that pulls no punches. Its passion is a breath of fresh air. --Professor Rodolfo Acuna, groundbreaking Chicana/o Studies historian

The story of the Chicano liberation movement by two radical women committed to our lucha, who know that the struggle continues until our final victory with the peoples of the world. ¡Venceremos! --Jose Cervantes, veteran of el movimiento

Recommended to all who thirst to know Chicano history. Takes on sacred cows and icons as it probes into the forces that both unite and divide our struggle. A needed addition to the arsenal of revolutionary literature. --Gil Veyna, labor activist and independent radical
