Long after the Mexican-American War brought the Southwest under the United States flag, Anglos and Hispanics within the region continued to struggle for dominion. From the arrival of railroads through the height of the New Deal, Sarah Deutsch explores the cultural and economic strategies of Anglos and Hispanics as they competed for territory, resources, and power, and examines the impact this struggle had on Hispanic work, community, and gender patterns.

This book analyzes the intersection of culture, class, and gender at disparate sites on the Anglo-Hispanic frontier--Hispanic villages, coal mining towns, and sugar beet districts in Colorado and New Mexico--showing that throughout the region there existed a vast network of migrants, linked by common experience and by kinship. Devoting particular attention to the role of women in cross-cultural interaction, No Separate Refuge brings to light sixty years of Southwestern history that saw Hispanic work transformed, community patterns shifted, and gender roles critically altered. Drawing on personal interviews, school census and missionary records, private letters, and a wealth of other records, Deutsch traces developments from one state to the next, and from one decade to the next, providing an important contribution to the history of the Southwest, race relations, labor, agriculture, women, and Chicanos. This thirty-fifth anniversary edition reflects on its place in the history of the Anglo-Hispanic borderland, class, and gender.

Industry Reviews
"A careful and scholarly work which manages at the same time to display a humane and respectful attitude towards the community it is examining."--Annella McDermott, Bulletin of Hispanic Studies "Well-documented yet animated discussion of forces that affected Chicano community--labor, family, women--Offers lively analysis and discussion, and sees culture as transformational, not static."--Daniel Morena, California State University, Long Beach "Excellent source, not only on... gender-class-ethnicity in the modern U.S. West, but also because part of the research was conducted here in Weld County, Colorado."--Michael Welsh, University of Northern Colorado "An important and much needed contribution to the growing historical literature on Chicano workers."--Zaragosa Vargas, International Labor and Working Class History "Excellent source on several topics: women, the Southwest, Hispanic history."-- Michael Welsh, Univ. of Northern Colorado "Unique....highly original interpretations...yield first rate revisionist scholarship. As a social history monograph, the book is thoroughly documented and skillfully organized, and the interpretive insights should encourage social theorists of migration, gender, and community to recast many assumptions."--Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, International Migration Review "The research is thorough; the scholarship is impressive....The book has implications beyond the Southwest."--Paul H. Carlson, The Historian "A marvelous social history....No Separate Refuge sparkles with historical and geographical insight and creativity....a marvel."--Richard L. Nostrand, , Journal of Historical Geography "Impressive....An important book that merits the attention of scholars in southwestern, frontier, and community history as well as those in women's studies and in the various social sciences."--Sandra L. Myres, Southwestern Historical Quarterly "In an extremely well organized and lucid study, Deutsch traces Southwestern Hispanics, as their migrations expand community and produce several different cultural frontiers....Gracefully written....her synthesis maps out a cultural motif that brings new meaning to the contours of western history."--Anne M. Butler, Reviews in American History "Sarah Deutsch's important studyELunderscores the complexity of the historical role of Chicanos....[It] concentrates on the interaction of the older, established world of the Hispano with the newer, challenging one of the Anglo arising from the United States conquest of the Southwest and the region's subsequent incorporation into the American capitalist economyEL.This book is a significant contribution to western and southwestern historiography. It represents an innovative and courageous effort to unravel complex questions."--Mario T. Garcia, Journal of American History "Excellent source, not only on... gender-class-ethnicity in the modern U.S. West, but also because part of the research was conducted here in Weld County, Colorado."--Michael Welsh, University of Northern Colorado "Well-grounded in social and economic history, Deutsch does a fine job in reconstructing the influence of Anglo capital and population into the Hispanic regional community. She deftly outlines the systematic dispossession and displacement of Spanish-speaking villagers.... Deutsch offers a searing portrait of prejudice and survival."- Vicki L. Ruiz, Agricultural History "An impressive addition to the work on Hispanic and Chicano society in the Southwest. Her work raises important issues and will help to shape further research and discussion in several related areas of nineteenth and early twentieth century social history."--Julie Roy Jeffrey, Journal of Social History "An excellent book. The author's research is impressive. The use of an interaction framework to explain Anglo-Mexican relations is executed well. Deutsch's weaving of economic, social, and feminist history is a "tour de force" in American social history."--Luis Leobardo Arroyo, Stanford University "Deutsch has made an important contribution to the history of the West, Chicanos, and the family. Firmly grounded in social science and Chicano history, her book demonstrates just how subtle and complex were the ways in which Anglo Americans conquered the American West--a process that is not done yet."--New Mexico Historical Review "Provocative....Deutsch has written an important book about the Anglo-Hispanic frontier in New Mexico and Colorado. Her study uncovers the ways competing cultures developed strategies to create and retain their visions of community. While Anglo views eventually proved more powerful, Hispanics challenged those views at every turn, adopting aspects of Anglo society that served them--sewing machines and autos--and rejecting those that undermined their community--schools and the English language. At the core of the Hispanic community, as at the core of this study, were women."-Kathleen Underwood, Western Historical Quarterly "In this pacesetting book, Sarah Deutsch brings social history, women's history, Chicago history, labor history, and western American history into a logical, long-needed convergence. Exploring the development and decline of a 'regional community' of Hispanic people extending from Northern New Mexico into Colorado, Deutsch makes a persuasive case for the central significance of women in the process of conquest, economic and cultural and social subordination, and social change....Deutsch has produced an important study, one of the first major efforts in western American history to give 'culture, class, and gender' each its due."--Patricia Nelson Limerick, American Historical Review "No Separate Refuge contributes significantly to our understanding of women in the American West....Offers much-needed information about the experience of Chicanos in rural areas of the American Southwest, particularly Hispanic communities in New Mexico and Colorado."--Oral History Review "In writing this very readable history of the Hispanic experience in northern New Mexico and Colorado, Deutsch has broken new ground in a number of significant ways....Most important...she challenges past stereotypes of Hispanics as isolated, static, inflexible, paternalistic, and passive....She has opened new chapters in the history of Southwestern race relations, agriculture, labor, and women's history."--Suzanne Forrest, Journal of Interdisciplinary History "Rarely are regional studies as successful in addressing broader historical questions as Deutsch's examination of the Hispanic community in northern New Mexico and Colorado from 1880 to 1940....In the process of describing the dynamics of an evolving strategy of adjustment, Deutsch provides fresh insights and demolishes stereotypes, particularly illuminating the central role of women in Hispanic village life. An innovative and expert blend of social and regional history, the book is solidly based on an unusually broad range of sources."--Choice "Her focus on northern New Mexico village women contributes significantly to our understanding of western women's history....Anyone interested in women's history and Southwest ethnic relations will want to read Deutsch's work."--Journal of Economic History "An excellent monograph that breaks new ground in southwestern history."--Albert Camarillo, Stanford University "A work of great range, detail and originality, full of dynamic interpretive strategies which are revisionist and revelatory and draw on a splendidly diverse array of sources."--Nancy Cott, Yale University "Sets a new standard in the writing of the social history of American communities."--Nell Irvin Painter, Princeton University "A rich and well-researched history...Deutsch's study is well worth reading, not only for its portrayal of Manito culture in New Mexico and its expansion into Colorado, but most importantly, because she places gender considerations at the core of historical inquiry about an ethnic and racial social system."--Newsletter of the Center for Research on Women
