Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


This book deals with a broad range of social issues facing Mexican-origin people in the United States. The studies presented in this volume are brought together by two main themes: social inequalities (cultural, educational, and economic) endured by the Chicano/a and Mexicano/a community in the United States, and the community's efforts to eradicate the source of those inequalities.
