9780195158519: Crucible of Struggle: A History of Mexican Americans from the Colonial Period to the Present Era (AAR Aids for the Study of Religion Series)

Latinos in the U.S. are a major political, economic, and cultural force which is changing the national identity of this country. In fact, statistics show that by the year 2100, half of the United States population may be Latino. And two of every three of America's Latinos are Mexican. Mexicans are the oldest settelers of the United States, and they are also the nation's largest group of recent immigrant arrivals. Their population is increasing faster than that of all other Latino groups combined. The growing importance of this minority group, which will be felt strongly in twenty-first century America, calls for a fresh assessment of Mexican American history.

Review:


I teach a course in Chicano History every year, and have for twenty years now...A text or synthesis is utterly essential, now more than ever...I think that the prospectus is reflective and thoughtful about current research...the content and coverage are appropriate...Professor Vargas' writing is...more accessible than many others, less burdened with jargon or miscellaneous details...I would use this book and I would urge colleagues to do the same.

I know he is an excellent historian.
Already a leading scholar of Chicano labor history, Vargas ranks among the most prominent practitioners ofe




"An excellent survey of Mexican American history from colonial times to the present. . . Focused mainly on the structural forces that have shaped socio-economic conditions of Mexicans in the U. S., Crucible of Struggle is sure to quickly replace the canonic texts now available for teaching Mexican American history."--Ramon A. Gutierrez, University of Chicago


"An impressive achievement--in one grand sweep, Vargas covers Mexican American history from Spanish settlement to the present day, taking the first 300 years as seriously as the last one hundred."--Sarah Deutsch, Duke University


"Crucible of Struggle is an exciting new history of Mexican Americans from the Spanish colonial period to the Latino present. Based on the latest and best scholarly research, this prodigious work goes into greater depth than previous surveys on generally unknown subjects, such as Mexican American heroism in armed conflicts from the Civil War through World War II."--John Chavez, Southern Methodist University
