Abstract:

"Over the past several decades, Mexican Americans have made an indelible mark on American culture. Now Charles Tatum explores the broad and complex arena of popular culture among Americans of Mexican descent and explains what popular culture can tell them about themselves." "Reviewing a range of expressive arts, from traditional forms to electronic media, Tatum explains the differences and similarities between Chicano popular culture and that of other ethnic groups or of Anglo society and shows how Chicano arts reflect a people's traditions and heritage." "Chicano Popular Culture invites readers to share the excitement of these vital arts and through them, to learn more about the uniqueness of America's fastest-growing minority."--Jacket.
