Editorial Reviews

Review

Authoritative collection...wisely eschews neat conclusions.

(Cheryl Harris Sharman San Francisco Chronicle)

The book is a valuable contribution.

(Susan J. Freiband American Reference Books Annual 1900-01-00)

It will become a major reference for graduate and faculty research...Highly recommended.

(Choice)

This is an important and much-needed anthology of 11 essays covering various aspects of recent (1960 to present) U.S. Latino history.

(Orlando Archibeque Reforma Newsletter)

This essay collection is informative, thought-provoking, and well-timed.

(Western Historical Quarterly 1900-01-00)

Gutiérrez provides a realistic and powerful interpretation of the Latino experience in America. This book is a must read for researchers, policymakers, community leaders, educators, and, indeed, anyone wishing to study the Latino experience and influence on American life.

(Carmen Izaguirre Monthly Labor Review)

Review

The Columbia History of Latinos in the United States Since 1960 will become the starting place for all research on the Latinization of the United States over the past few decades. David Gutiérrez brings together an all-star cast to discuss the great demographic transformation in modern American society. The volume provides a wealth of information and fills a previous void in the literature on Latinization by charting new analytical waters to include the experiences of multiple Latino subpopulations in the United States, including ethnic Mexicans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Central Americans and South Americans. Drawing on experts in sociology, anthropology, political science, and history, the essays collectively explore and interpret the social, cultural, and political significance of the shifting boundaries of the diverse Latino subpopulations in the United States. It is a must-read for anyone interested in the expanding Latino population and its influence on American life.

(Jacqueline Hagan, University of Houston)|

David Gutiérrez's impressive collection paints a portrait of Latino communities rooted in shared history yet internally diverse, with remarkable differences between one another. The contributions by well-known scholars in the field discuss social, economic and cultural processes that transcend national boundaries. Thematic articles on gender, religion, expressive cultures, politics, and the law provide nuance about processes that link disparate national-ethnic groups. The text is accessible, meticulously researched, provocative, and illuminates transformations that touch us all.

(Patricia Zavella, University of California, Santa Cruz)
