Inhaltsangabe: Wave upon wave of newcomers has penetrated the semiarid plains of the U.S.-Mexican borderlands. Among the settlers and sojourners along the Rio Grande in the mid–eighteenth century were the founders of Laredo, who came seeking survival and permanence in that chaparral country.
Established in 1755 as an outpost of New Spain, Laredo, like other borderlands towns, has periodically been buffeted by powerful outside forces that upset the stable society and family unity characteristic of the early villa. Unlike some other border communities, though, it has maintained a prominent Mexican-American political and economic elite.
Applying quantitative techniques of demographic analysis and interweaving their results with more traditional narrative, Gilberto Miguel Hinojosa tells the story of a borderlands town and its people. He shows how larger events such as war, economic depression, and changes of sovereignty affected family structure, racial and ethnic divisions, social-class relations, age composition of the population, property ownership, literacy, and other aspects of the daily lives of the townspeople. His conclusions suggest that life in these communities was far from the static, uneventful existence it was once believed to be.
Rezension: Hinojosa is successful in providing an exceptional examination of demographic patterns by using the quantitative approach. His analysis includes the effects of war, economic depression, property ownership, literacy, and changes in government, the family structure, racial and ethnic divisions, plus social and class composition. By taking this approach Hinojosa is able to derive conclusions identified with external forces and the changes Laredo encountered as Americans and Europeans became a part of the community. These conclusions provide insight into the power struggle which occurred between the wealthy political leaders of the Anglo-Americans, Mexicans, and Europeans. . . . Hinojosa is successful in providing a unique and thorough history of the Laredo community and the relationship between Mexican-Americans and Anglo-Americans."--Yolanda Romero (Yolanda Romero)
