"Provocative . . . . A timely intervention on Mexican American politics and labor."--Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva
"Scholars of Mexican American politics have largely rendered invisible capitalism and the inequalities that flow from it. This is a remarkable analysis of Latino politics and labor in this period of market-driven madness and unruly democracy. . . The Latino Question is a compelling critique of our political economy." --Rodolfo F. Acuña, Author of Occupied America
"Studies of Latino politics in the past have largely failed to locate their discussions in the context of the American capitalist political economy and the class divisions that it fosters and that shape so much of the country's political and cultural struggles. The Latino Question provides a pathbreaking and extraordinary account of contemporary Latino politics."
--Mario Barrera, author of Race and Class in the Southwest
