Chicano literature, says Luis Leal in his introduction to this work, is now widely acknowledged as ``that literature written by authors of Mexican background born or residing permanently in the United States . . . .'' The nearly 800 entries embrace the standard literary genres, anthologies, critical works (including dissertations), and audio-visual materials. Excluded are children's literature and criticism of individual authors, while a new category, ``literatura chicanesca'' (i.e., ``written by non-Chicanos about the Chicano experience'') appears. Leal's introduction serves as an informative bibliographic essay to the field. Recommended for Chicano studies and larger humanities collections. Charles E. Perry, Central Coll. Lib., Pella, Iowa
