This Omnibus E-Book brings together Mario Garcia's landmark books on Latino Studies.
The Latino Generation: Voices of the New America
Latinos are already the largest minority group in the United States, and experts estimate that by 2050, one out of three Americans will identify themselves as Latino. Though their population and influence are steadily rising, stereotypes and misconceptions about Latinos remain, from the assumption that they refuse to learn English to questions of just how "American" they actually are. By presenting thirteen riveting oral histories of young, first-generation college students, Mario T. Garcia counters those long-held stereotypes and expands our understanding of what he terms "the Latino Generation."
Blowout!: Sal Castro and the Chicano Struggle for Educational Justice
This fascinating oral history transcribed and presented in Castro's voice by historian Mario T. Garcia, is a compelling, highly readable narrative of Castro, a young boy growing up in Los Angeles who made history by his leadership in the blowouts and in his career as a dedicated and committed teacher.
