A Gringo Manual on How to Handle Mexicans (Hispanic Civil Rights)by Jose Angel Gutierrez
Synopses & Reviews
Cultural Writing. Latino/Latina Studies. Jos' Angel Guti'rrez is the firebrand civil rights leader of the 1960s and 70s who succeeded in making a minority-based political party a reality in Texas and various other states. In 1970, Guti'rrez led La Raza Unida Party to stunning victories in Crystal City, Texas and surrounding communities, with Mexican Americans winning all contested seats on the city council and school board, seats held for decades by Anglos. Despite Guti'rrez's total commitment to la causa, he found time to write in order to share his political wisdom. Originally self-published during the heat of the Chicano Movement, A GRINGO MANUAL ON HOW TO HANDLE MEXICANS, now expanded and revised, is a humorous and irreverent manual meant to educate grass-roots leaders in practical strategies for community organization, leadership and negotiation. Jose Angel Guitierrez is currently a professor of political science at the University of Texas at Arlington.
Originally self-published during the heat of the Chicano Movement, A Gringo Manual on How to Handle Mexicans, is a humorous and irreverent manual meant to educate grass-roots leaders in practical strategies for community organization, leadership and negotiation. With tongue in cheek, Gutierrez attacks the authorities and sacred cows that caused Chicanos anxiety for decades.
