MEDIA REVIEWS
"Anything But Mexican challenges neo-liberal interpretations of the history of Los Angeles which blame Mexicans and other immigrants of color for the decline of the city. Acu a's provocative work confronts these historical myths, signalling that Latinos will not be dismissed."--Deena Gonz lez, Pomona College

"Required reading on Chicanos in the Southwest. This book will stand amongst the classics in Chicano Studies."--Teresa Cordova, University of New Mexico

"This book defines important political and social space for Latinos in what has become the capital of Mexicans in the US. Anything But Mexican is a sensitive and often pointed discourse."--Carlos Velez-Ibanez, UC Riverside

"Rodolfo Acu a is one of the foremost scholar/activists in the country, bridging the gap between the Chicano movement and a multi-racial left that is often uninformed about the growing strategic importance of Latinos in the US."--Eric Mann, Director, Labor Community Strategy Center, Los Angeles

"A political and social history every bit as insightful and powerful as the earlier works by a pioneering Chicano scholar dubbed by some the 'W.E.B. Dubois of Chicano Studies.'"--James Cockcroft, SUNY Empire
