Biographies of thirteen major activists of the Mexican American generation, which is defined as “bounded by the years from 1920 to 1965” (xiv), are presented in this anthology that resulted from a symposium commemorating the sixtieth anniversary of the American GI Forum. Editor Anthony Quiroz notes that the work is designed not only to provide biographical overviews of these men and women who “shaped the character and identity of this generation” (xiv) but also to place them in their historical context and recognize the significance of their contributions. Overall, the volume meets these objectives.
