More About King of the Chicanos by Manuel Ramos
 
 
 
Overview
Both heroic and tragic, this novel captures the spirit, energy, and imagination of the 1960s' Chicano movement—a massive and intense struggle across a broad spectrum of political and cultural issues—through the passionate story of the King of the Chicanos, Ramón Hidalgo. From his very humble beginnings through the tumultuous decades of being a migrant farm worker, door-to-door salesman, prison inmate, political hack, and radical activist, the novel relates Hidalgo’s personal failures and self-destructive personality amid the political turmoil of the times. With a gradual acceptance of his destiny as a leader and hero of the people, this impassioned novel relates the maturation of one man while encapsulating the fever of the Chicano movement.
