Racist in every way. Total Chicano propaganda and no basis in reality.
While the writing was good and the subject matter covered well, the flow of information was scattered throughout the book making it not useful for classwork making it difficult to follow for learning all the facts on a singular event or person. Not a very good historical book to use if you need more exact facts, figures, dates and concepts for study. Also, the index was missing more than a few important figures that were written about in the book that shows a lack of attention to detail.
The Chicano Moratorium
The Youth of Aztlán
