Latinos Unidos presents an unexpected perspective on Latinos-not only as a highly diverse and rapidly growing population in the United States with distinct social, cultural, and economic features-but as a new political force with a cohesive collective ethnic identity. Trueba, using his unique vantage point as a Latino immigrant and scholar, explores the vital issues of personal identity and resiliency, adaptive strategies, and successes of Latinos in North America in this pathbreaking book.
Enrique T. Trueba is Ruben E. Hinojosa Regents Professor and chair of the Curriculum and Instruction Department, Department of Education at the University of Texas, Austin.
