Acknowledgments

This book would not have been possible without the contributions of a number of individuals. I gratefully thank Deborah Gershenowitz, Senior Editor at the New York University Press, for her support throughout this project. Appreciation is also extended to Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, coeditors of the Critical America Series, for their support and encouragement. Special thanks go to Richard for his valuable editing suggestions. I offer my gratitude to two anonymous external reviewers who provided a number of excellent suggestions for improving the manuscript. I also extend my appreciation to Martin Tulic for his outstanding work in preparing the book's comprehensive and detailed index. This book was completed because of financial support from The University of Texas at Austin. I thank Dr. José E. Limón, Director of the Center for Mexican American Studies, and Dr. Manuel J. Justiz, Dean of the College of Education, for their research grants. My deep appreciation goes to the University of Texas Co-operative Society for awarding me a subvention grant to assist with the underwriting of this book. Very special appreciation goes to Dr. Bruno J. Villarreal, who served as my extremely able research assistant in facilitating the preparation of this project, particularly via his adroit skills in locating and helping abstract many of the legal cases. Thank you very much, Bruno, for your outstanding assistance.

To my wonderful wife, Marta, thank you for allowing me to bounce some ideas off you. Your excellent feedback is truly appreciated. Also, I extend my deep affection and gratitude to you for your unwavering support during the long process of undertaking this book project. And, as always, thank you Juan and Carlos, my twin boys, who were so patient while Dad did his writing. You're the best sons a father could have.
