Summary
"Oscar "Zeta" Acosta: The Uncollected Works gathers unpublished stories, essays, letters, poems and a teleplay written by Acosta (1935-1974), the legendary Chicano attorney, political activist and writer. All of these works were written between the early 1960s and shortly before his mysterious disappearance in Mazatlan, Mexico, in 1974"--BOOK JACKET. "Through these writings Acosta reveals a variety of personae: a leader troubled by issues of ethnic, linguistic and cultural identity, a man who saw himself as a Robin Hood of Mexican Americans, an unstable yet genial wanderer who joined Hunter S. Thompson in a search for the American Dream. Acosta realized that democracy is about speaking out, about feeling uncomfortable, about defining others and oneself through the prism of race and history."--BOOK JACKET. "With the publication of Oscar "Zeta" Acosta: The Uncollected Works, the complete picture of a crucial player in the Chicano Movement - described by others as "our Thomas Aquinas" and by himself as "the Brown Buffalo"--finally emerges."--Jacket
