CHOICE Review

Drawing on a wealth of information from various polls of the Latino electorate conducted by Latino Decisions, the leading Latino public opinion research firm, the contributors to this edited volume investigate the outreach to, political attitudes of, and electoral power of Latinos in the 2012 electoral cycle. Spoiler alert: "Latino voters were decisive for the first time in a presidential race." Particular attention is given to the issue of immigration and how candidate positions on the issue played among Latinos in key states, including Colorado, New Mexico, California, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, and Nevada. Each state-based narrative focuses on the presidential election but includes down-ballot races and ballot initiative contests. The book is anchored by strong contributions at the beginning about the power of Latino (and black) voters to decide presidential elections and at the end about demographic shifts and ways the issue of immigration and the power of Latino votes will impact future elections. The chapters work well together for an edited volume. An accessible collection supplemented with an impressive amount of survey data, the book is well suited to general interest and undergraduate readers. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and undergraduate students of all levels. --Melissa R Michelson, Menlo College
