    1 thought on “Occupied America: A History of Chicanos”

    1. Classic Chicano studies bible. I have an earlier edition, so I'm not sure what changes or additions have been made since then. I had the pleasure of having Rudy (Rodolfo Acuna)as an instructor for a semester or two in college. He was wacky- a true revolutionary thinker and a real inspiration to impressionable undergrads like myself. If I recall correctly, he won a court battle against the UC Regents, who claimed his version of certain historical events in this particular book were fictional and [...]

    2. Well I am by far no Chicano because I believe the Idelogy is way too nationalist and Mexicocentric but this is an excellent book on how this Continent belongs to our Idegenous (Raza) people. Only 1 thing though, skip Chapter 1. Chapter 1 he talks about how Indegenous Socities were before European Imperialism and he makes many mistakes.The Author could take some classes on Idegenous Pre-European Life. The rest is good work though.

    3. Although this book was plagued by too many errors in punctuation and grammar (someone at the publishing company was clearly asleep at the wheel!), this latest edition of Acuña's classic work is extremely timely. Furthermore, the addition of various web sites (including videos) in the footnotes section will be useful resources for me for the upcoming semester.

    4. I wouldn't read it on it's own but when paired with other books with emphasis on Xicano/Xicana history such as Vigil's "From Indians to Chicanos," it becomes a part of a well rounded study that dispels many myths in modern thinking.

    5. You have to prune away the extreme leftist bias, but this book provides an excellent and detailed examination of Hispanic American history.

    6. What did you get taught about American history? Oh Mr Columbus discovered a new world!Well this is the other portion of history. Yes it seems to be written from a biased point of view (as I was told) but facts are pretty straight forward and like all history books it was written by the narrators point of view.At least you'll get some understanding of the history you never heard.

    7. Literally just finished for my graduate class on "the West" in American History. This is a great book that shows the history of the Chicano identity and culture over the hegemonic narrative of Anglo culture. The book is somewhat textbook framed, meaning each chapter has sections with a review section. However, this made the book oddly fluidic and gave it a flow. I would recommend the book.

    8. It has been an honor to know Rudy Acuña. He is a very knowledgeable professor. Even though I'm one of his favorite students, his little girl, as he says, I really do not like the format of the book. However, Rudy is very well versed and read.

    9. should be listed under fiction. his sources are questionable at best. political correct gone south. It is embarrassing that he teaches at my alma mater.
