Unwanted and Not Included is a critical response to the social, political, and racial concerns that affect Mexican Americans. In a series of essays, JuliA­n Camacho examines who the Mexican Americans are, and more importantly, what differentiates them from Whites, Blacks, Asians, and other immigrants from Latin America.

Unwanted and Not Included...is readable...the ideas and stories are written so they can be understood...[and] the book's direction toward indigenous people is helpful. -- Gabriel Estrada, Assistant Professor of American Indian Studies & Chicano Studies, California State University, Long Beach
Camacho has shed some light on the trials and tribulations of Mexicans living in America...[and] vividly paints a picture of how the U.S. sees race relations strictly from a black / white paradigm. Much of the material...may not be easy to hear but needs to be addressed. -- Ruben Puente, Santa Monica College
Camacho has written these stories from the heart and from everything he has experienced firsthand...These stories describe all of us who have gone through a system that makes us feel as if we don't belong... -- Maricella Carmona, California State University, Los Angeles
Unwanted and Not Included is a significant contribution to the small but growing field of Chicano critical thought. The themes he selects for discussion strike a strong cultural independent nerve from students that have been introduced to the usual traditional perception of Chicano cultural life. It's an intellectual, refreshing experience. -- Abel Amaya, professor, Chicano Studies, California State University, Fullerton
