"...As a symbol for political action, a place of spiritual plentitude, or as a challenge to transcend ethnic borders, Aztlan emerges throughout these essays as one of the Chicano Movement's fundamental ideological constructs. This volume will be of interest to students and critics concerned with the understanding and comprehensive reconstruction of one of the Chicano cultural emblems of the late 1960s. Given the present emphasis in Chicano studies on discourse analysis and critique of ideologies, this volume is a contribution to Chicano cultural criticism."--Roberto Cantu, California State University

"A valuable work for those interested in Chicano, ethnic and southwestern studies."
"This anthology is important and useful for two reasons. For those who were involved in the Chicano movement, the essays provide an important summary of what Aztlan meant . . . For everyone else, this collection of essays is an excellent starting point for understanding the changes in the social and political life of Mexican Americans."
