Dr. Urrieta was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and is the son of Mexican immigrants.

Reviews

"A theoretically sophisticated, disturbing, moving account of the identify transformations of 24 Chicanas/Chicanos as they engaged with US schools first as young students, eventually, for some, as faculty in schools and universities. Without Urrieta's research, outsiders to the Latino/a experience might think "upward mobility". Instead these activists are striving to "give back" to their communities and wrestling with "playing the game" versus "selling out". An eye-opening book for those of us who feel at home in "whitestream" schools." --Dorothy Holland, co-editor of History in Person: Enduring Struggles, Contentious Practice, Intimate Identities
