MEDIA REVIEWS
"Rejecting the use of 'Mexican-American' as falsely connoting immigrant status, Mirande emphasizes that Chicanos are an indigenous people and that their significant indio/mestizo heritage has been neglected. Attacking the immigrant group model which concentrates on
acculturation and assimilation, he discusses Chicano labor, criminality, education, the church, the family, and machismo . . . an interesting and thought-provoking study." --"Library Journal"


"["The Chicano Experience"] offers an understanding of social, cultural, and economic forces shaping the situation of Chicanos--a context absent from much of what has been written about them." --"Choice"


"Mirande's major contribution in "The Chicano Experience" is his proposal of a new perspective that provides for an alternative interpretation of Chicano socio-history, social status, and culture." --"Journal of American Ethnic History"
