9781442207738: Latino Politics in America: Community, Culture, and Interests (Spectrum Series: Race and Ethnicity in National and Global Politics)

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. García'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.

About the Author:

John A. García is Research Professor at the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research and Faculty Associate at the Center for Political Studies (Institute for Social Research) at the University of Michigan. He has published numerous journal articles and books and is the coauthor of Latino Lives in America.

Review:

John A. García’s excellent second edition of his impressive book continues to be notable for its comprehensiveness and intellectual thoughtfulness. He deftly articulates an overall theme(s) of “community of culture” and “community of interests” and applies it throughout, offering rich insights and providing a firm foundation for understanding the political behaviors, attitudes and activities of, as well as the differences and similarities between, the Latino population(s) in contemporary America. Readers from several disciplinary backgrounds and with varying levels of knowledge about Latino politics will find it informative and engaging.

(Rodney E. Hero, University of California, Berkeley, Charles and Louise Travers Professor of Political Science)

García again effectively uses community, culture, and interest to understand Latino politics in the U.S. His goal is not simply to help us better appreciate the ever growing presence and complexity of this community, but to fully appreciate how the future of Latinos is absolutely critical to understanding fundamental elements of the future of all American politics.

(Luis Ricardo Fraga, University of Washington, Russell F. Stark Professor of Political Science)
