A Savage Song: Racist Violence and Armed Resistance in the Early Twentieth-Century U.S.-Mexico Borderlands - Racism, Resistance and Social Change (Hardback)Margarita Aragon (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Aragon considers both the continuities and stark contrasts across these different moments: how were racialized constructions of masculinity differently employed? How did African and Mexican American men, including those in uniform, respond to the violence of racism? And how was their resistance, including their claims to manhood and nation, understood by law enforcement, politicians, and the press?
Building on extensive archival research, the book examines how African and Mexican American men have been constructed as 'racial problems', investigating, in particular, their relationship with law enforcement and ideas about black and Mexican criminality.
