About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for American Me by Griffith, Beatrice.

Description:

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. First edition (first printing). Cloth worn at base of spine, else very good, but lacking the dust jacket. This copy is inscribed, 'For Miss Elizabeth Wood, Best Wishes, Beatrice Griffith.' An uncommon book. Bookseller Inventory #
