Summary:
"Meticulously researched and cogently argued, Mexican Chicago is an intriguing, provocative, and pathbreaking study that cuts across the fields of Latino history, labor history, immigration history, and urban studies. It is a superbly crafted and theoretically satisfying history of Mexicans in the Midwest, one that will shape the direction of future research."--Vick L. Ruiz back cover.
