Editorial Reviews

"It's the best survey text I have found. As you see, I supplement it with a document collection and with a brief text on the late 20th century. It is a straightforward narrative approach. It provides a reasonably broad range of information. I find the narrative approach accessible. Thenarrative is reasonably comprehensive. While one can always add more detail, I would not like to see the book grow much larger. What's missing is a theoretical framework (or frameworks) for understanding the narrativeEL Coverage of the borderlands, Mexico, Mexicans, and Mexican-Americans is generallyweak. The problem here is that there are very few competing books for a class like mine. Most are either limited to a particular time period or a particular racial group. So the coverage in this book is the best I have found, despite the limitations I have noted. --Mark G. Jaede, St. Cloud State University
