Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679744568, Paperback)

In solid journalistic prose, the Washington Post's Roberto Suro illuminates the critical issues associated with Latino immigration to America--including poverty, bilingual education, and the relationship of Latinos to blacks as well as whites--by depicting the lives of Latino immigrants and their children, all of whom are struggling to make a life for themselves in the United States.

There's a lot more to Latino immigration than Southern California; from Puerto Ricans in New York City to Cubans in Miami, Latinos are transforming America's ethnic makeup and economy. Suro examines why the immigrants come and what happens to them once they've arrived. With an eye to the future (in which Latinos, if organized, may represent a powerful voting bloc), Suro offers common-sense suggestions on how the Latino community can take a proactive stance on illegal immigration and English-language training to facilitate full integration into American society.
