"...a major revisionist work of the history of Mexicans in Texas.... the most important race-class analysis of the Chicano experience." --Gilberto Cardenas, University of Texas at Austin " exciting work that should win major reviews for its originality." --Arnoldo De Leoacute;n, Angelo State University "The success of this award-winning book is in its honesty, scholarly objectivity, and daring, in the sense that it debunks the old Texas nationalism that sought to create anti-Mexican attitudes both in Texas and the Greater Southwest." -- Colonial Latin American Historical Review " outstanding contribution to U.S. Southwest studies, Chicano history, and race relations.... Montejano's general model will certainly provide useful approaches to the study of other regions and race relations settings. This is a seminal book that should be required reading for both specialists and general readers interested in the themes analyzed so aptly by David Montejano." -- Hispanic American Historical Review r
