    I really appreciated the historical, sociological, anthropological, and literary criticism that is listed. This is just a suggestion, but I noticed alot of the Chicano literary cannon is missing from this list. Works like Tomas Rivera’s “…Y no se le tragó la tierra…And the Earth did not Devour Him;” Arturo Islas’ “The Rain God;” Oscar Zeta Acosta’s two part series “Autobiography of a Brown Buffalo” and “Revolt of the Cockroach People;” classics from Americo Paredes (there are many but “George Washington Gomez” is one); Ronaldo Hinajosa’s works; and for more contemporary work that is sure to be cannonized is John Philip Santos’ “The Places left Unfinished at the Time of Creation;” and Salvador Plascencia’s “The People of Paper.” I wasnt sure if the anthologies cited were supposed to encapsulate most of these authors and works in an effort to save space, so just in case.
