Edition: First printing.

Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, (1979) dj. Hardcover first edition - A book which "provides the first detailed analysis of the changes that transformed one of the most important Mexican pueblos in the Southwest into a Chicano urban barrio.. . the author traces the major socio-economic, political, and racial factors that evolved during the post-Mexican War decades and that created a subordinate status for Mexican Americans in a burgeoning American city."(Western Historical Quarterly) "Los Angeles Chicanos emerge . . as internally diverse, active participants in the simultaneous struggles to maintain their socio-cultural fabric and to capture a part of the American Dream. The author effectively demonstrates that the Chicano decline occurred not because of cultural weaknesses but as the almost inevitable result of Anglo prejudice, numerical domination, and control of political and economic institutions."
