While this is, for me, someone not interested in the topic of mestiza/Mexican culture, not a good read, I will say this should be a standard for anyone studying racial stuff in university. It talks a lot about passing, a lot about conquering passing, and gives SUCH GOOD INFORMATION that you can use in almost all manner of essays involving race. I have applied this book to just about everything and it has worked flawlessly. It's worth it if you're in the collegiate and essaying realm. Outside, it's just a bore.
