9780874172911: A History Of Hispanics In Southern Nevada (Wilbur)

This lively, highly informative study covers the long and colorful past of Hispanics in Nevada, analyzes their growing role in the state's present - especially in the booming urban South - and offers some projections for their future, as well as for the future of research in this field. We discover that the contributions of Hispanics to Nevada are as diverse as the cultures and personalities of the various Spanish-speaking peoples who settled here, and that their importance as one of the state's fastest growing ethnic groups is no less interesting than their colorful past.

Book Description University of Nevada Press, United States, 1997. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Hispanics were among the first people of European descent to venture into the territory that became Nevada, and they have participated in every stage of the state s history and development since then--its mines, railroads, and ranches, the growth of its cities, and its modern industries. Until recently, however, their role in the development of the state and their lively cultural contributions have escaped the scrutiny of scholars. Now, in this important pioneering study, M. L. Miranda offers a thoughtful account of Nevada s largest ethnic minority. Miranda analyzes their growing role in the state-especially in the booming urban South-and offers some projections for their future. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780874172911
