Overview

Since the 1980s a number of important books have been published that focus on issues affecting Hispanics throughout the United States. None until now, however, have focused solely on the New York Latino experience. The 12 essays collected in Latinos in New York comprise the first book-length analysis of the past and present condition of Latinos in metropolitan New York. Focusing on Puerto Ricans, these essays also contains the most up-to-date thinking on the newer Latino migrant groups in New York such as the Dominicans, Cubans, Mexicans, Colombians, Ecuadoreans, and Peruvians. Not only do the contributors emphasize the specificity of the New York Latino experience, they also suggest the generalization of many of their findings and policy recommendations at the national level. Latinos in New York will be used as a text for courses in ethnic studies, sociology, political science, anthropology, and indeed any class that deals with minorities in urban America. While the book emphasizes what is unique about the Latino experience in New York, the authors also intend that the essays will be of relevance to general readers interested in Latino issues, policy analysts, and students of the Latino experience throughout the United States.
