Gonzalez and Fernandez's polemic against the traditional narrative of Chicano history is provocative, and I like their central point about the inextricability of American empire and Mexican immigration. Still, it seems inaccurate to me to call this "Chicano" history, since the object of their study isn't really Mexican Americans, but rather U.S.-Mexico economic relations, immigration, and foreign policy.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415943930, Paperback)

This study argues for a radically new interpretation of the origins and evolution of the ethnic Mexican community across the US. This book offers a definitive account of the interdependent histories of the US and Mexico as well as the making of the Chicano population in America. The authors link history to contemporary issues, emphasizing the overlooked significance of late 19th and 20th century US economic expansionism to Europe in the formation of the Mexican community.
