Description

This newly revised edition of Latino Politics in America 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.
