This book deals with a broad range of social issues facing Mexican-origin people in the United States. The studies presented in this volume are brought together by two main themes: social inequalities (cultural, educational, and economic) endured by the Chicano/a and Mexicano/a community in the United States, and the community's efforts to eradicate the source of those inequalities.

The second edition of Roberto De Anda's Chicanas and Chicanos in Contemporary Society successfully brings together recent research by young scholars focusing on key characteristics of the Mexican-origin population in the United States. This collection treats all the issues essential to the curriculum and captures the excitement of Chicana/o studies with readings that include multiple theoretical perspectives and research methods. I enthusiastically recommend this book as a useful text for both introductory undergraduate courses and upper division offerings. -- Francisco Balderrama, Ph.D., professor of history and Chicano studies at California State University, Los Angeles
With the increasing number of Chicano/a and Latino/a communities throughout the U.S., and the subsequent increase in Chicana/o and Latina/o studies courses in many universities, comes the need for a reader that addresses the cultural, educational, and economic inequalities faced by Mexican-origin and Latino people in the U.S. The second edition of Roberto De Anda's Chicanas and Chicanos in Contemporary Society is such a reader. This book addresses the key issues of underemployment and the working poor in Latino communities while simultaneously providing positive examples of how Chicanos/as and Latinos/as are overcoming these inequalities by combining aspects of tradition with new strategies in the social, political, and economic institutional realms. This book will be indispensable to courses in Latina/o and Chicana/o studies, race and ethnicity, and diversity/multiculturalism. -- Jose Z. Calderon, Ph.D., professor of sociology and Chicano studies at Pitzer College
