Zoot suit by Luis Valdez( Book )

"Focusing on the events surrounding the Sleepy Lagoon Murder Trial of 1942 and the ensuing Zoot Suit Riots that turned Los Angeles into a bloody war zone, this is a gritty and vivid depiction of the horrifying violence and racism suffered by young Mexican Americans on the home front during World War II. Valdez's cadre of young urban characters struggle with the stereotypes and generalizations of America's dominant culture, the questions of assimilation and patriotism, and a desire to rebel against the mainstream pressures that threaten to wipe them out."
Mummified deer and other plays by Luis Valdez( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mundo Mata is the long-awaited drama of unionizing farm workers battling the agribusiness power structure in California in a time when Mexican Americans are being sent off to battle brown-skinned enemies in Vietnam. Valdez assesses the toll that families have to pay to remain united against divisive forces. It all comes down to Reymundo, the antihero, who in the end must weigh existential and political questions." "The Shrunken Head of Pancho Villa, Valdez's re-worked first play, still holds all the vision, spunk, and innovation of the young playwright. Injecting black humor into domestic drama, disembodied heads talk, mothers exchange roles with the patriarch, Pachucos banter, and sell-outs become the mouthpieces for an oppressed community."--Jacket
