CHOICE Review

With the dramatic shifts in US demography since the 1960s, this anthology addresses important social transformations and suggests possible futures. The book is one of the first to examine 20th- and 21st-century data on Latinos in the US, and it will become a major reference for graduate and faculty research. The strength of the anthology is the combination of thematic chapters (on gender, religion, culture, politics, and the law) and chapters on history, immigration, population, economy, and diversity of Latino subpopulations. Looking beyond geopolitical borders to assess contemporary data on Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Central Americans, Dominicans, and South Americans, the lens of globalization emphasizes the international context of Latino experience in the US. Even the thematic chapters advance the argument for Latino heterogeneity and intracultural diversity with evidence that is specific to a Latino subgroup. The anthology also has merit in its interdisciplinary approach: the contributors are experts in a range of fields. The chapters by Gutierrez are particularly valuable for their annotated endnotes, which provide broad cross-references on a range of topics. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries. K.
