Reviews outstanding contribution to U.S. Southwest studies, Chicano history, and race relations....

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 * 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 *
