Latino Politics in America: Community, Culture, and Interests


Latino Politics in America: Community, Culture, and Interests Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Latinos constitute the fastest-growing population in the United States today, and Latino political participation is growing rapidly. Still, Latino political power is not commensurate with the numbers, and much potential remains to be tapped. In Latino Politics in America, author John A. Garcia examines the development of this vibrant community and points the way toward a future of shared interests and coalitions among the diverse Latino subgroups.This newly revised edition lays out the basic facts of Latino America who Latinos are, where they come from, where they reside and then connects these facts to political realities of immigration, citizenship, voting, education, organization, and leadership. Garcia's nuanced portrait of contemporary Latino political life, first published in 2003, has been updated throughout to include data from the 2010 census and the 2008 and 2010 elections.
