Recounts the history of a Chicano rights group in 1960s Denver
  • Vigil gives a detailed account of the Crusade for Justice's history of activism and the persecution they faced from police and government agencies. I found the book to be written objectively for someone who was involved and might have strong feelings about the subject. It is well documented with a large note section that includes references as well as further explanations.

  • Good work on the movement and the era in Denver. Ernesto who I used to know did an excellent job.

  • excellent overview of the CRUSADE FOR JUSTICE the most powerful miltant group of the CHICANO movement of the 60s 70s and 80s led by CORKY GONZALES of Denver Colorado. Ernesto's describtion of the CRUASDE puts you right in the middle of there struggle. A must read for any progressive CHICANO youth of the future.

  • Having met Ernesto as a young Chicano activist, I find the volume to be illuminating, inspiring, and instructive. Vigil lays out how the US Government both manipulates and seeks to destroy indigenous movements of the oppressed. Vigil points to the historic role of the Chicano people in the Americas as a source of power, constancy, hope, unity, and progressive change. In this book, he uplifts the Chicano community and its power,despite the at times overwhelming oppressiveness of the US Imperialist corporate ruling class.

  • doesnt cover the bombings

  • The result is a terrific and important book... It's important because it is history and the author was there on the front lines making this history with his people. I have read almost every book on the Chicano Movement, and this is the best ever written. Every middle school , high school, and university should have this book in their history department if one is to understand what the Chicano people had to endure
