Bolstered with an array of archival sources and oral interviews, she carefully delineates the nature of political organizing among Mexican Americans across the Southwest. On a deeper level, the book considers larger themes of American nationalism and citizenship and the role of minorities in the military service, themes that remain pertinent today. Lorena Oropeza's exploration of the evolution, political trajectory, and eventual implosion of the Chicano campaign against the war in Viet Nam encompasses a fascinating meditation on Mexican Americans' political and cultural orientations, loyalties, and sense of status and place in American society.

I thought it was a nice touch to devote a full chapter to the Laguna park protest and the events leading up to it. My only complaint was the littering of poorly written sentences. It made for a frustrating read that had me on decoding duty every few sub-chapters. Jun 18, Kathleen rated it really liked it. It has the appearance of an academic volume, but it makes excellent use of personal stories to paint a pretty good picture of the complex relationship of war, citizenship, and racism for Chicanos in the 20th century.
Maybe if you're not Chicana it doesn't have the same effect, but I see different parts of my family and community in this and so far I find it riveting and informative. May 13, Brandon Milton rated it really liked it.
