"Days of Obligation looks into Americanorth and south of the Rio Grandeas
penetratingly and eloquently as Camus did when he compared the mental landscapes
of France and Algiers."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"The best American essayist as far as I'm concerned.[Rodriguez] doesn't kowtow to
political correctness. He shuns the pack, rides alone. He writes a lonely line of
individualism, the grandeur and grief of the American soul."--Village Voice

In a series of ten essays, spanning five centuries of history, beginning with the conquest
of Mexico by Hermn Corts and ending in 1992 San Francisco. Rodriguez explores the
conflicts of race, religion, and cultural identity for Mexican-Americans across the landscape
of his beloved California.

The book's "argument" poses Mexico and the United States as moral rivals. Mexico wears

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cannot do that as much as we would llike. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It is a common problem and it is the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
