Summary

Ramon Eduardo Ruiz would be the first to admit that he is not your typical Mexican American. But he has always known who he is.
Historian, author, and intellectual, Ruiz has established himself through such books as Triumphs and Tragedy: A History of the Mexican People and Cuba: The Making of a Revolution, and in 1998 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Clinton. Now he turns his pen on his own life to offer a personal look at what it really means to be American by birth but Mexican by culture.
Memories of a Hyphenated Man is the story of a unique individual who, while shaped of a unique individual who, while shaped by his upbringing and drawing on deep cultural roots, steadfastly followed his own compass in life. It tells of a singular man who beat the odds as it poignantly addresses the ambiguities associated with race, class, citizenship, and nationality for Mexicans and Mexican Americans.

Author Biography

Ramon Eduardo Ruiz Urueta is presently Professor Emeritus at the University of California, San Diego, where he served as chairman of the Department of History from 1971 to 1976.
