Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-Clearly written, balanced over-views of social and political issues affecting two American ethnic groups. Ten topics are addressed in Acuna's title, including assimilation, race classification, bilingual education, social services for undocumented immigrants, the amnesty programs for illegal immigrants, and border issues. Rosier addresses treaties, land claims, media stereotypes, gaming, ancestral remains, and economic improvement versus environmental protection. Each issue is discussed in a separate chapter that begins by summarizing historical background and current context, including relevant legislation and court decisions. Arguments used by proponents and opponents to support their positions follow. Each chapter concludes with in-depth endnotes, a short source or reading list, and discussion questions. Latino Issues ends with a comprehensive, annotated resource guide. Small, dark captioned black-and-white photos and a few tables and charts complement the texts. Both books contain a helpful, but selective index. Useful supplements to existing series on these topics.-Jack Forman, Mesa College Library, San Diego Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
