The body of this paper is intended to be a book manuscript. It is hoped that its readers will be those who work directly with Mexican-Americans--employers, school-teachers, law-enforcement officers, social-workers, church leaders, parent-teacher groups, union officials, public agency employees, and many others in communities in our Southwest. It is also hoped that the book will reach and interest a general reading public in the United States. It has become almost axiomatic to say that no minority problem is, to-day, merely regional or even national in scope. The currency of the axiom by no means alters its essential truth. Our continued friendship with Latin America, a mutual necessity, depends, to a greater degree than most persons in the United States realize, upon our treatment of Latin-American minorities within the United States. Our sins of omission and commission toward these minorities make headlines in Latin-American capitals, where there is a realistic tendency to judge the validity of our international intentions by what we do in our own backyard.
