A community where indeed a new culture – the Mexican-American culture – is being born …

The book is divided into 5 chapters:

– Portraits of immigrants drawn in the arts
– The political and social context in which Mexican-Americans live (including a section dedicated to the border, another to the New York Mexican-American phenomenon, another to Chicago and one to Los Angeles)
– Mexican artists who have made their mark in the United States
– Remarkable Mexicans
– and finally, Spanish in the United States.
