Preface by Matthew Restall
A valuable contribution to ongoing efforts to demythologize and properly memorialize the Spanish-Aztec War of 1519–21, this volume also aptly illustrates how we make history of the past and how that history-making shapes our present—and possibly our future.
Indians, Spaniards, and the Invention of Nuevo México
by Danna A. Levin Rojo
Employing long-overlooked historical and anthropological evidence, Danna A. Levin Rojo reveals how ideas these natives held about their own past helped determine where Spanish explorers would go and what they would conquer in the northwest frontier of New Spain—present-day New Mexico and Arizona. Return to Aztlan thus remaps an extraordinary century during which, for the first time, Western minds were seduced by Native American historical memories.
Mexican American Moderates during the Chicano Movement, 1960–1978
by Guadalupe San Miguel
In the Midst of Radicalism for the first time shows us these moderate Mexican American activists as they were, playing a critical role in the Chicano Movement while maintaining a long-standing tradition of pursuing social justice for their community.
A transnational history that reveals how ideas move across borders and between communities, Homeland offers welcome insight into the defining and changing concept of belonging in relation to citizenship. In the process, the book marks another step in a promising new direction for Mexican American intellectual history.

The Business of Tejana Music and Culture, 1930–1955
by Mary Ann Villarreal
In Listening to Rosita, Villarreal seeks answers by pursuing the story of a small group of Tejana singers and entrepreneurs in Corpus Christi, Houston, and San Antonio—the “Texas Triangle”—during the mid-twentieth century. Ultimately she recovers a social world and cultural landscape in central south Texas where Mexican American women negotiated the shifting boundaries of race and economics to assert a public presence.
