"This inclusive lexicon offers terms associated with the Chicano population and its history, experiences, and customs....The entries which combine English and Spanish terminology, include definitions, commentary, and citations to Chicano folk narratives, arts, folk drama, and popular culture....These entries give context to expressive behaviors and artifacts... as well as words that have been absorbed into everyday English." - Library Journal
