This book unravels the ethnic history of California since the late nineteenth-century Anglo-American conquest and the institutionalization of white supremacy in the state. Drawing from an array of primary and secondary sources, Tomás Almaguer weaves a detailed, disturbing portrait of ethnic, racial, and class relationships during this tumultuous time. A new preface looks at the invaluable contribution the book has made to our understanding of ethnicity and class in America and of the social construction of race in the Far West.
