Pressestimmen"Imaginative and rich political science... Rosales' analysis of middle-class Chicano activism in the early postwar era is both a new and an important contribution to our knowledge of San Antonio's and Texas' recent political history... Also, the clarity of the book's writing and structure make it a good candidate for use in intermediate undergraduate urban and/or minority politics classes." Sidney Plotkin, Professor and Chair of Political Science, Vassar College
