9781469614113: The Latino Generation: Voices of the New America

Latinos are already the largest minority group in the United States, and experts estimate that by 2050, one out of three Americans will identify as Latino. Though their population and influence are steadily rising, stereotypes and misconceptions about Latinos remain, from the assumption that they refuse to learn English to questions of just how "American" they actually are. By presenting thirteen riveting oral histories of young, first-generation college students, Mario T. Garcia counters those long-held stereotypes and expands our understanding of what he terms "the Latino Generation." By allowing these young people to share their stories and struggles, Garcia reveals that these students and children of immigrants will be critical players in the next chapter of our nation's history.

Collected over several years, the testimonios follow the history of the speakers in thought-provoking ways, reminding us that members of the Latino Generation are not merely a demographic group but rather real individuals, as American in their aspirations and loyalty as the members of any other ethnic group in the country.

Book Description:

"A deeply moving and personal account of the struggles these young men and women faced not only in negotiating a social, political, and economic terrain marked by the anti-immigrant hostility of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century, but also in waging intimate battles within their own families as each crafted his or her own meaning of the so-called American dream. Garcia's book provides insight into the hopes and fears of the newest generation of Latinos as they struggle to attain academic success and a place in American society on their terms."--Monica Perales, author of Smeltertown: Making and Remembering a Southwest Border Community
