The various protest movements that together constituted the Chicano Movement of the 1960s and 1970s
urged a "politics of inclusion" to bring Mexican Americans into the mainstream of United States political
and social life. This volume of ten specially commissioned essays assesses the post-movement years,
asking, "What went wrong? What went right? and Where are we now?" Collectively, the essays offer a
wide-ranging portrayal of the complex situation of Mexican Americans as the twenty-first century begins.

Gente Decente A Borderlands Response to the Rhetoric of Dominance
By Leticia M. Garza-Falcon
Garza-Falcon explores how prominent writers of Mexican descent have used literature to respond to the
dominative history of the United States, which offered retrospective justification for expansionist policies
in the Southwest and South Texas. She shows how these counter-narratives capture a body of knowl-
edge and experience excluded from "official" histories, whose "facts" often emerged more from literary
techniques than from objective analysis of historical data.

American Indian Literature and the Southwest
By Eric Gary Anderson
Culture-to-culture encounters between "natives" and "aliens" have gone on for centuries in the
American Southwest-among American Indian tribes, between American Indians and Euro-Americans,
and even, according to some, between humans and extraterrestrials at Roswell, New Mexico. Drawing
on a wide range of cultural productions including novels, films, paintings, comic strips, and historical
studies, this groundbreaking book explores the Southwest as both a real and a culturally constructed
site of migration and encounter, in which the very identities of "alien" and "native" shift
with each act of travel.
