"A Clamor for Equality: Emergence and Exile of California Activist Francisco P. Ramirez" by academician and historian Paul Bryan Gray is a 432 page biography showcasing the life and accomplishments of one of California's hitherto unsung heroes of the 19th century struggle in southern California for political and social equality for its Mexican-American citizenry. In 1855, at the age of 18, political radical Francisco P. Ramirez launched 'El Clamor Publico, a Spanish-language newspaper advocated Mexican-Americans to become politically active and vote in to governmental offices at all levels men who would work to promote and secure their rights. He would continue that struggle for the rest of his life and add to it significant work toward the abolition of slavery, free elections, and education for women. Informed and informative, "A Clamor for Equality" is superbly crafted biography of seminal scholarship and should be considered an invaluable addition for academic 20th Century California History reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
