Although Mexican Americans comprise the United States' second largest minority group, most studies have provided only a historical perspective on Chicano issues. In contrast, Toward a Chicano Social Science presents an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Mexican Americans, incoporating race relations theory to analyze the sociohistorical conditions of Chicanos in contemporary society. A special feature of the book is its focus on Chicanos and gender roles within Chicano life, a topic often neglected in other texts. Written at the undergraduate level, Blea's text provides a thorough analysis of both theoretical and applied issues, which will aid students and professors of Chicano ethnic, and women's studies, sociology, and social work.
