About this book

Reviews

"Football might be the most suitable metaphor to understand the role of Latinos in the United States today." - Ilan Stavans, General Editor, The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature

"Who knew that the NFL was Chicano? That the National Football League owed much of what it calls its legend to Americans of Mexican descent? Well Aldama and González did and do and with Latinos in the End Zone they share with football fans and pointy-headed professors alike (not a group that often tailgates together) compelling, evocative, and moving stories that trace the Mexican DNA at the heart of the NFL." - William Nericcio, author of Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucinations of the "Mexican" in America
