Reviews

"Dr. Lopez's work is a valuable contribution to the mosaic of oral histories of minority subcultures within the larger majority society comprising the United States. It adds to the oral history tradition of the Federal Writers' Project started as part of President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, Works Project Administration (WPA) during the great depression."
