Summary: Mexican Americans and the Question of Race makes an important contribution to the ongoing debates about race and immigration. Based on interviews in Texas, Julie A. Dowling shows us that even though many Mexican Americans identify as white when answering the Census, that does not mean they are necessarily considered white or assimilated or even understand themselves as such, despite the facile observations of some scholars. Rather, self-identification as white in official statistics often involves a situational identity based on ideologies and discursive strategies regarding citizenship, aspirations and other non-phenotypical and non-cultural traits. For Mexican Americans and Latinos in general, race is clearly more complex than how it is traditionally understood in the United States. N° de ref. de la librería

With Mexican Americans constituting a large and growing segment of U.S. society, their assimilation trajectory has become a constant source of debate. Some believe Mexican Americans are following the path of European immigrants toward full assimilation into whiteness, while others argue that they remain racialized as nonwhite. Drawing on extensive interviews with Mexican Americans and Mexican immigrants in Texas, Dowling's research challenges common assumptions about what informs racial labeling for this population. Her interviews demonstrate that for Mexican Americans, racial ideology is key to how they assert their identities as either in or outside the bounds of whiteness. Emphasizing the link between racial ideology and racial identification, Dowling offers an insightful narrative that highlights the complex and highly contingent nature of racial identity.
