This is the new and fully updated edition of this classic work on the development of Chicano radicalism in America. “Youth, Identity, Power” is a unique exploration of the origins and development of Chicano radicalism in America. Carlos Munoz Jr, himself a leader of the Chicano movement of the 1960s, places the movement in the wider context of the political development of Mexicans and their descendants in the US. He traces the emergence of Chicano student activists in the 1930s, the rise and fall of the Chicano Power Movement, and situates the student protests of the 1960s within the changing political scene of the time. Fully revised and updated throughout, “Youth, Identity, Power” fills a significant gap in the history of political protest in the United States, and a significant contribution to the cultural development of the Chicano population as a whole. © 1998-2001 Amazon.com, Inc. und Tochtergesellschaften
