Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0268007497, Paperback)Exposing the inadequacies of the present structure for social science research on Chicanos, Mirande demonstrates how the conventional immigrant group model of society, with its focus on assimilation into mainstream American culture, cannot apply to Chicanos. He supports his theory with a detailed examination of Chicano social history and culture that includes studies of Chicano labor; the Mexican immigrant and the U.S.-Mexico border conflict; the evolution of Chicano criminality; the American educational system and its impact on Chicano culture; the tensions between the institutional Church and Chicanos; and the myths and misconceptions of "machismo."
