Summary
This well-written, comprehensive account of Anglo-American stereotypes of Mexicans in nineteenth-century Texas makes for interesting reading. ... As the author notes, the heritage of the past still persists. Mexican Americans in Texas are no longer lynched, but they continue to be 'victims of psychological violence in the more subtle form of discrimination.'
