Arnoldo de Leon, a Tejano historian, has added to the historiography of Chicano history in Texas through the publication of The Tejano Community, 1836-1900 (University of New Mexico Press, 1982) and They Called Them Greasers (University of Texas Press, 1983). While de Leon feels that this autobiography helps document the voice of the "so-called Mexican American Generation," it is merely the lightly edited memories of Salvador Guerrero, World War II veteran, civil servant, and West Texas community activist. De Leon, however, finds this slim volume an indispensable contribution makes it clear that his editorial services were primarily style, not substance.
