Mexican-Americans in the Southwest by Ernesto Galarza( Book )

11 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and Spanish and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With findings as presented in this 1969 book, a 2-year field study conducted by a 3-member team analyzed the economic, cultural, political, and educational conditions of Mexican Americans in the Southwest (California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas) with some reference to braceros and the situation in Mexico. An overview of 8 geographic Mexican American groupings leads into a discussion of such topics as mobility, urbanization, the culture of poverty, educational disadvantagement, community infrastructure, and communication. Divisions within the minority group, situations creating cultural and political immobility, and problems in the administration of welfare programs are described and used as a backdrop for predictions that the Mexican American family will continue to need outside help and that the cost of social assistance will rise. A 23-point summary and an appendix containing 22 statistical tables on demography, education, and employment conclude the book. (Bo)

The fight in the fields : Cesar Chavez and the farmworkers' struggle( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This historical documentary tells the story of Cesar Chavez, the charismatic founder of the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers, and the movement that he inspired. The heart of the UFW, Chavez remains the most important Latino leader in this country's history. The activities he and his dedicated organizers led inspired the Chicano activism of the 1960's and '70's, helping to create a Latino civil rights movement. This documentary examines the grape and lettuce boycotts and the non-violent movements of the 1960s and 1970s that confronted conservative politicians like Ronald Reagan and the powerful Teamsters Union and inspired Chicano activism. This chapter of American history recounts an inspiring story of hope and courage against overwhelming odds, a story of poor people taking control of their lives. This documentary uses archival footage, newsreels, and contemporary interviews with activists, politicians, and Chavez family members
