The Injustice Never Leaves You: Anti-Mexican Violence in Texas By Monica Munoz Martinez (review)
In The Injustice Never Leaves You, Monica Munoz Martinez provides an outstanding analysis of the racist violence that Anglos used to control ethnic Mexicans in Texas. Building on the work of other historians, including Benjamin Johnson, Nicholas Villanueva, William Carrigan, and Clive Webb, she discusses, for instance, the burning of Antonio Rodrıguez by a mob in Rocksprings in 1910 and the rampage by Anglo lynch mobs and Texas Rangers in the Lower Rio Grande Valley in 1915, a massacre that claimed the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of ethnic Mexicans.
