The first of 12 papers, "Colonial Labor and Theories of Inequality: The Case of International Harvestor", reports on the role of minority labor in one of the largest corporations in the U.S. and interprets the patterns of inequality within a framework of colonial theory. "Casimiro Barela: A Case Study of Chicano Political History in Colorado" recounts the accomplishments of a Chicano political leader who in the last quarter of the 19th century protected the rights of Chicanos in Colorado and throughout the Southwest. Other papers present a historical analysis of the Title VII Bilingual Education Act, discuss Chicanos in politics, summarize a mental health needs and attitude survey, describe the development of the Chicano working class in Santa Barbara, California, and discuss Chicanos as a post-Colonial minority. "Towards an Understanding of the Politicization of Lumpenproletariat: A Dramaturgical First Look" recounts the author's participation-observation experiences with a Brown Beret Chapter in its formative stage. Two other papers discuss Marxism and the Chicano Movement, and Tejano music as an expression of cultural nationalism. The final papers are "Language as an expression of Ideology: A Critique of a New Marxism View" and "The Social Origins of Chicano Nationalism, Class and Community in the Making of Aztlan: 1800-1900."
