Riassunto: Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States and will comprise a quarter of the country's population by mid-century. The process of Latinization, the result of globalization and the biggest migration flow in the history of the Americas, is indeed reshaping the character of the U.S. This landmark book brings together some of the leading scholars now studying the social, cultural, racial, economic, and political changes wrought by the experiences, travails, and fortunes of the Latino population. It is the most definitive and comprehensive snapshot available of Latinos in the United States today.
How are Latinos and Latinas changing the face of the Americas? What is new and different about this current wave of migration? In this pathbreaking book social scientists, humanities scholars, and policy experts examine what every citizen and every student needs to know about Latinos in the U.S., covering issues from historical continuities and changes to immigration, race, labor, health, language, education, and politics. Recognizing the diversity and challenges facing Latinos in the U.S., this book addresses what it means to define the community as such and how to move forward on a variety of political and cultural fronts. All of the contributions to Latinos are original pieces written especially for this volume.
Dal retro di copertina: "This rich and varied collection gives content and analytic shape to the notion of a pan-ethnic Latino experience in the U.S. The authors use as markers a variety of shared socioeconomic conditions and immigration histories at the heart of these diverse experiences. Latinos takes an important step toward carving out a field for empirical and theoretical specification."-Saskia Sassen, author of Guests and Aliens "In this thought-provoking volume, scholars from a range of disciplines raise key questions about Latinos in the United States. Admirably complete and judiciously framed, Latinos breaks new ground as it presents this group's multiple experiences."-Cecilia Menjívar, author of Fragmented Ties: Salvadoran Immigrant Networks in America "This outstanding book makes a highly significant contribution to scholarship on the fast-growing Latino population. There simply is no other book as comprehensive and well documented. Latinos will be read by a broad audience of academics (in social science, ethnic studies, policy, education, law), as well as policy makers and analysts trying to understand this group."-Pedro A. Noguera, author of The Imperatives of Power: Political Change and the Social Basis of Regime Support in Grenada from 1951-1991 "This is a landmark scholarly work in its scope, comprehensiveness, and excellence. It makes an important contribution to improving our understanding of the Latino experience in the United States."-Raul Yzaguirre, President of the National Council of La Raza "Latinos brings together the most sophisticated thinking on the changing intellectual complexion of America. Drawing upon scholars in both the humanities and the social sciences, Latinos challenges us to redefine what we mean by 'American' culture and indeed 'America' itself. This book is necessary reading for all those who believe that a fully inclusive definition of American Studies is long overdue."-Henry Louis Gates, Jr., author of Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Black Man "How and why are Latin American immigrants changing the U.S. socially, culturally, economically, and politically? And how and why do Latino group experiences vary? This fascinating interdisciplinary collection of essays advances our understanding both of the main 'new immigrant' peoples of our time and of the 'new America.'"-Susan Eckstein, author of Power and Popular Protest: Latin American Social Movements and Former President of the Latin American Studies Association "This signature volume on Latinos in America addresses immigration, residential segregation, voting behavior, workforce participation, education, gender, health status, and variations among Latino groups (Cubans, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, and others). Some questions that the contributors, among the best in the world, raise are absolutely riveting. America is one nation comprising many cultures and committed to liberty and justice for all; Latinos is essential reading for anyone who cares about those high ideals."-Richard A. Shweder, author of Thinking Through Cultures: Expeditions in Cultural Psychology and Co-Chair of the Social Science Research Council/Russell Sage Foundation Working Group on Ethnic Customs, Assimilation and American Law
