x, 341 pages. A classic portrait of Mexican Americans in Los Angeles in the immediate post-Second World War period. Probably the most sympathic look at Chicanos of the era. Griffith's central question might be summed up--to paraphrase the introductions--How many generations does it take before white Americans consider Mexican Americans to be simply Americans.

An uncommon book. Bookseller Inventory # 136074
