Creating the Good Old Days. Review of "Out of the Barrio: Toward a New Politics of Hispanic Assimilation," by Linda Chavez.
McCarty, Luise Prior
Bilingual Research Journal, v16 n3-4 p153-56 Sum-Fall 1992
Criticizes the book reviewed as a right-wing policy potboiler. Rebuts five main claims that devalue bilingual education and affirmative action while assuming that all Hispanics strive for the goal of measurable individual attainment, even at the cost of communal and cultural impoverishment. Suggests that the book glorifies the immigrant good old days of hard work and assimilation. (TD)
