Overview

The 2000 presidential election was one of the closest in history, yet this book shows that the Latino vote and voice in the election were limited in impact. In time for election year 2004, Muted Voices explores general themes and trends in American politics and Latino voter participation, while focusing on key state electoral results including Florida, Texas, and most important, California. Since 1988, de la Garza and DeSipio have led the way in interpreting the role of Latinos in U.S. elections. This new installment in their series of electoral studies is chock full of data and thematic suggestions about the future of Latino politics. An introduction by public opinion specialist Robert Y. Shapiro puts Latino voter potential in context with U.S. politics and policy.

Editorial Reviews

Argumentation and Advocacy
[This book] contributes importantly by foregrounding the complexities of Latina/o participation in the American political system and by highlighting the strategic concerns and opportunities that face this community as their participation is courted and engaged. The often overlooked and often scapegoated Latina/o community deserves this attention. Perhaps this volume will be a clarion call to scholars of political communication and rhetoric to locate intersections in their research where Latina/o issues can receive greater attention and exposure.
CHOICE
With particular emphasis on states with high concentrations of Latina/os, this is an excellent study of the elections. Indeed, this volume will be an important reference. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers and undergraduate to graduate students. Should be required reading for public officials, political candidates, and policy advisers.
