Occupied America: A History of Chicanos offers an authoritative, accessible approach to Mexican American history. It's among the most comprehensive and definitive introductory Chicano history texts available today. Rodolfo Acuña is one of the foremost and most highly regarded voices in Chicano history and ethnic studies. Passionately, engagingly written and extensively researched, the text covers Chicano history in its entirety. Timelines provide clear contexts for the most important events, illuminating today's struggles in the process.

The 9th Edition has been extensively updated, largely in light of the 2016 Presidential election and the “Age of Trump” and for better precision of language.
