"Figueredo has gathered significant accomplishments of Latinos and placed them within their historical, social, political, religious and environmental contexts, starting with prehistory and leading up to 2006. He describes the first cultures and civilizations in detail, disastrous and deadly first contacts with Europeans and the process of assimilation with Spanish culture, the ongoing methods of discrimination and the efforts by individuals and groups to counter it, the development of modern American Latino culture, and the continuing themes of race, society and religion that run through modern Latino life. This is very accessible and well-organized and includes a glossary, bibliography and comprehensive index that serves as a good cross-reference."
