Authoritative introduction to Mexican American history

Occupied America: A History of Chicanos -- by Rodolfo F. Acu a, one of the foremost and most highly-regarded voices in Chicano history and ethnic studies -- is among the most comprehensive and definitive introductory Chicano history texts available today. Passionately, engagingly written, and extensively researched, Occupied America covers Chicano history in its entirety and uses timelines to provide clear contexts for the most important events, illuminating today's struggles in the process. The 9th Edition has been extensively updated, largely in light of the 2016 Presidential election and the "Age of Trump," and for better precision of language.

NOTE: This loose-leaf, three-hole punched version of the textbook gives students the flexibility to take only what they need to class and add their own notes -- all at an affordable price.
