Overview

Latinos are the fastest growing population group in the United States.Through their language and popular music Latinos are making their mark on American culture as never before. As the United States becomes Latinized, how will Latinos fit into America's divided racial landscape and how will they define their own racial and ethnic identity?

Through strikingly original historical analysis, extensive personal interviews and a careful examination of census data, Clara E. Rodriguez shows that Latino identity is surprisingly fluid, situation-dependent, and constantly changing. She illustrates how the way Latinos are defining themselves, and refusing to define themselves, represents a powerful challenge to America's system of racial classification and American racism.

I would recommend this book to every single person who lives in the United States.America underwent huge changes during the last 100 years, that people need to know about. Through vivid insight of the Census,presented by Clara Rodriguez, we learn about different classifications of people and the development of the bipolar structure; between the whites and other races. However, this bipolar structure is resisted by Latinos, who come in diffrent types of color and range from being white to black.GREAT READ THAT REALLY INFORMED ME OF THE CURRENT AND PAST HISTORY OF ETHNIC MINORITIES IN THE UNITED STATES!!!!
