Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Delgado takes the readers to a level beyond the basic knowledge that is available in the social work profession about the Latino population. As a professional Latina it is intellectually stimulating to see a book that goes deeper in exploring cultural and institutional issues that affect the lives of immigrant families....Dr. Delgado's formulation of a cultural assets paradigms offers the reader a theoretical view of ways to assess and design interventions that are supportive of Latino culture." - Ana Paulino, EdD, ACSW, Associate Professor at Hunter College School of Social Work, City University of New York

"Melvin Delgado provides a refreshing alternative to the old deficit approach to social service practice with Latino populations. I am sure this model will greatly aid in the development of culturally relevant evidence-based practices that will prove to be effective in addressing many of the health and social problems confronted by Latinos at the neighborhood, city, state, and national levels." - Mario de la Rosa, Ph.D., Professor, School of Social Work and Director, Center for Research on US Latinos, Florida International University

Format: Hardcover
This is a recent book that has very useful information. Anyone who works with Hispanics in the USA needs this book. It is a well prepared, easy to read even for novices book that is a great resource. It is difficult to find information that gives you a good insight into the facts and figures that no one else has taken the time to present in such a way as to give you the "big picture" of the Hispanic situation in the USA. I can recommend this book as one that you will not put down and a great resource for facts and figures.
There is not a better resource out there, trust me. With this book, you most likely will not be needing another for awhile. I like that it brings up issues that are largely ignored when looking at demographics and the Hispanic presence in the USA.
