Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Designed for "interactive reading," this book is organized in a question-and-answer format that allows one to look up specific information (e.g., "What Were the Zoot Suit Riots?") or to read from cover to cover. Chapters include the following: definitions and overview; the Hispanic, African, and indigenous roots of today's Latinos; the newest immigrants-Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, and Central Americans; the political impact of Hispanics in the United States; and famous Latinos. Overall, the tone of the work is light-hearted; the all-too-frequent instances of Anglo-Latino duplicity (and even Latino-Latino antagonisms) are treated with a measure of good humor and without rancor. Sources for further reading are current and ample. This is both an informative and entertaining volume, written in a conversational, colloquial style. Recommended for general readership.-Charles E. Perry, East Central Univ., Ada, Okla.
