About the Author

John Tutino teaches the history of Mexico and the Americas in the History Department and School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.

"Mexico & Mexicans in the Making of the United States is long overdue [...] Beginning in the colonial era, this collection of essays successfully argues that Mexico and Mexicans have been a too-long ignored factor in the political, economic, and social history of the United States. Essays on labor history, American literature, racial categorization, and middle-class Mexican Americans all demonstrate that the United States has been "made" by Mexico and Mexicans in myriad ways. An ambitious work, Mexico and Mexicans engages with Western, American Indian, and Chicano historiography along the way. " - Journal of American Ethnic History
