"Ethnic Community Builders: Mexican Americans in Search of Justice and Power is an oral history of Mexican American activism in San Jose, California, over the past half century. The authors present interviews of fourteen people of various stripes - teachers, politicians, radio personalities - who have been influential in the development of a major urban center with a significant ethnic population. These activists tell the stories of their lives and work with openness and honesty, allowing readers to witness their achievements and failures. This vivid ethnography of a Mexican American community serves as a model for activism wherever ethnic groups seek change and justice."--BOOK JACKET.
