Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Classics professor Hanson is also, like generations of his family before him, a fruit farmer in California's central valley. He has employed immigrants, seen them flood his community during the last 30 years of mass flight from Mexico, and endured the crime associated with illegal immigrants. Hanson is immensely sympathetic to poor Mexicans, however, and the most powerful chapter here outlines the harried life of the illegal alien. But he hates to see the ordered culture in which he grew up drowned by an alien inundation whose undeserving beneficiaries are Mexico's kleptocratic rulers, for whom an open border is a safety valve expelling the potential for democratic change. The four solutions to the mess that Hanson enumerates include continuing de facto open borders but insisting on rapid acculturation; patrolling the border effectively and reducing legal immigration; imposing "sweeping restrictions on immigration" and ending Mexican chauvinism in the U.S.; and allowing present policies to make California increasingly mirror an unreformed Mexico. Hanson thinks that the U.S. "still need not do everything right" to prevent social collapse in the Southwest and that the totalitarian uniformity of valueless mass culture may soften that collapse. He also sees very clearly what has brought this crisis on: the American globalist ideology's lust for cheap labor and emphasis on "raw inclusiveness" instead of "standards and taste." Ray Olson

From AudioFile

Hanson, a professor of classics at Cal State Fresno and a columnist for NATIONAL REVIEW, lives on the land his family has farmed for generations. This work is a clear examination of the present situation regarding illegal immigration from Mexico. Although the author gives several possible solutions to the problem, his main contention is that the only wise course of action is to assimilate the immigrants into the larger culture, as happened with other waves of immigrants in our nation's past. James has a steady and calm voice. Adroit with both Spanish and English, he is appropriately expressive throughout this production.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mexifornia's "Twenty Years Later" chapter adds content for Chapter 10 of "California Madness"
By Corey Lee Wilson on July 17, 2021
The new "Twenty Years Later" chapter in the 2021 edition is perfect timing for my latest sapient conservative textbook "California Madness: A SAPIENT Being’s Guide to the State’s Recall, Leftist Policies & Progressive Downward Spiral" to be published one week ahead of the Governor Newsom recall election on September 14, 2021. This latest edition provides the introduction and primary content for Chapter 10 - Mexifornia: Why the State's Largest Ethnic Group is Falling Behind the Others." Victor Davis Hanson is one of California's favorite sons and has the sapience (and courage) to tell it like it is without bias or false narratives.
