Chicanos: A Study Guide and Sourcebook.
Dunn, Lynn P.
Intended to serve as a beginning reference text for students and teachers, this study guide documents "white racism" and some of the problems and struggles Chicanos have faced and continue to experience in the United States. Personal contributions of individuals, and the richness and texture added to American culture by Chicanos are also discussed. The aim is to provide the reader a many-dimensioned, cross-disciplinary study experience, stressing humanistic concerns. Three themes are treated: (1) Identity, (2) Conflict, and (3) Integration and Nationalism. Within each thematic section, there is a study outline which is basically historical and chronological in development. A "Notes and Sources" column provides references to sources which bear upon, and notes which deal with sidelights to -- or which expand upon -- the parallel "Study Outline". Though most of the sources cited for further study bear directly and importantly upon the study outline, at times a source is given which is merely allusive. For the sake of objectivity, and to aid the reader in his own search for understanding, sources included for further study quite often represent several viewpoints (some of them "bigoted or extremist", on one or more sides of an issue). A bibliography which cites 194 additional sources is also given. (Author/NQ)
