Chicano Studies is an anthology that will begin your journey of introduction into the field of Chicano Studies as an academic discipline that for the last thirty years has sought to tell the story of Chicanos in the United States. This anthology attempts to capture in five sections the salient features and dynamics of the Chicano experience emerging in the new millennium. The historical struggle and achievements of the Chicano are presented first. Those antecedents are followed by an examination of the current characteristics and challenges of the Chicano demographic profile in areas like immigration, politics, education, environmental justice, the fine arts, and socioeconomic development.

This interdisciplinary text draws from a wide range of experts in various fields that enable the reader to acquire a substantial understanding of the extant issues and challenges faced by a Chicano population that constitutes two-thirds of the 50.5 million Hispanics in the United States. Its quest for equity and full participation in American society in the midst of global change is examined through the prism of specific academic disciplines, theories, and practice.

 

Chicano Studies includes the following instructional features:

  • Assessment modules after each major section
  • Recommended readings 
  • Recommended films and documentaries
  • A list of web site links to organizations concerned with the Mexican origin population in the U.S.
