Overview

"This innovative book deals with a large and understudied area: Latino political behavior. Its argument regarding the diversity of the Latino community is important and the authors' attention to generational differences in the community is a rarity. Significant and original, this book covers more ground than any other work on the subject."—Lisa García Bedolla, University of California, Berkeley

"Books examining aspects of Latino political behavior are sparse—this one fills that void. The authors succeed in adding to our knowledge on the subject and they do so in a very organized and easy-to-understand fashion."—Paula D. McClain, Duke University

Editorial Reviews

Choice
New Faces, New Voices successfully gives voice to the new Hispanic voter and clearly illustrates the importance of a diverse and growing population. The book is an invaluable addition to both ethnic studies and political behavior literature.
American Review of Politics
New Faces, New Voices offers a great deal of analysis in a relatively small package. Consequently, it will serve as a resource for upper-division classes in Latino politics, race and ethnic politics, and US. Political behavior.
— Louis De Sipio
CEU Political Science Journal
Because of the quality of the research presented in this book, it can be recommended as an innovative approach to studying Hispanic voting behavior in the United States. It also sheds light on the complexity of this issue and on new ways of studying ethnic political behavior.
