Overview

Creating a New Future: 1986 to Present reflects the significant changes in the Latino experience in the United States. Legislation that resulted in an immigration pool no longer dominated by Europeans forced open the door for U.S. Latinos to become major players in business, government, entertainment and the arts, and professional sports. Yet even as the group grows to make up a sizable percentage of the American population, quality of education, medical care, employment, and housing, among other concerns, continue to be issues.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kevin Beach
This six-part series follows American history through the eyes and deeds of Hispanic explorers, settlers, and immigrants, from the voyages of Columbus to the burgeoning and vibrant Latino communities of today. Spanish Settlement in North America discusses life on the typical Western ranchero, how Texas evolved from a Mexican province to an independent republic and an American state, how border conflicts in other Western states affected Mexican-American relations, how banditos terrorized the West, and how barrios and their specific culture began springing up as cities grew larger. Cubans in the Florida cigar industry and Hispanics in the Caribbean region are also covered. Creating a New Future evaluates the current status of Latinos in America. Societal and educational barriers are examined along with the effects of exploding populations from illegal and legal immigrants into Florida, Texas, and California. Religion, media, entertainment, politics, and even language are affected by the growing influence of this largest minority in America. Every volume in the series offers well-designed text that is enhanced with illustrations, photos, and box features, which highlight fast facts, quotations, or brief bios of important Latino achievers. The text is designed for an upper elementary or middle school audience but can serve as a helpful survey for older students. Other titles in the series include The Spanish Conquest of America, Prehistory-1775; Independence for Latino America, 1776-1821; Struggling to Become American, 1899-1940; and Fighting for American Values, 1941-1985. Series editor Mark Overmyer-Velazquez is an expert in Latino history andculture who brings his passion for the subject to the final product.
