University of California Press, 1987 - 213 oldal
Anthropologists, historians, and sociologists will find here a striking challenge to accepted explanations of the northward movement of migrants from Mexico into the United States.

Alvarez shows how cultural stability actually increased as migrants settled in new locations, bringing their common values and memories with them.
