Due to the dramatic growth of the Latino population in the United States, in combination with the relative decline of the Anglo (non-Hispanic white) share, Latino studies is increasingly at the forefront of political concern. In "Latino Politics; Identity, Mobilization, and Representation", editors Rodolfo Espino, David L. Leal, and Kenneth J. Meier bring together essays from a number of leading scholars to address the ever-more-important issues within the field. Providing an overview of issues surrounding Latino identity, political opinion, and political behavior - such as differences among Latino groups based on national origin, the importance of descriptive representation, and issues of competition and cooperation, particularly with reference to African Americans - the contributors speak to the many fundamental debates ingrained in the discipline.
