Description

At a time when politics is seemingly ruled by ideology and emotion and when immigration is one of the most contentious topics, it is more important than ever to cut through the rhetoric and highlight, in numbers, the reality of the broad spectrum of Latino life in the United States. Latinos are both the largest and fastest-growing racial/ethnic group in the country, even while many continue to fight for their status as Americans.
Respected movement builder and former leader of the Tides Foundation Idelisse Malavé and her daughter, Celeste Giordani—a communications strategist for the Social Transformation Project—distills the profusion of data, identifying the most telling and engaging facts to assemble a portrait of contemporary Latino life with glimpses of the past and future. From politics and the economy to popular culture, the arts, and ideas about race, gender, and family, Latino Stats both catalogs the inequities that plague Latino communities and documents Latinos' growing power and influence on American life.
An essential tool for advocates, educators, and policy makers, Latino Stats will be a go-to guidebook for anyone wanting to raise their awareness and increase their understanding of the complex state of our nation.

      • content:
        "The truth is many Americans don't know the real story behind the huge and growing Latino demographic in our country. And most don't understand the deep complexity within this multifaceted group. Latino Stats makes it simple to get some of these basic questions answered. It's one more tool to help change the simplistic narrative about Latinos. Because Latino/a is more and more what our futuro looks like."
      • premium: False
      • source: Juan Cartagena, president and general counsel of LatinoJustice PRLDEF
      • content: "Latino Stats is a timely, well-organized compendium of data points for the nation's largest racial or ethnic minority that teaches a new thing or two to Latinos and non-Latinos alike. But what ?it does best is to break the myth of homogeneity that so many opinion makers erroneously ascribe to this important demographic group. If you want to understand the future of America, start here."

        February 1, 2015
        By 2050, nearly 30 percent of the U.S. population will claim Latino heritage, and trends within this demographic will impact more Americans than ever before. Malav' and Giordani, a mother-and-daughter research team of Puerto Rican heritage, have compiled hundreds of stats, facts, and figures to catalog such trends among Latinos, including linguistic practices, voting habits, economic impact, incarceration rates, and more. Much of the information may not be surprising, such as the increasing numbers of Latino citizens and the lack of Latino CEOs and politicians. But the most interesting tidbits provide starting points for productive conversation, like the fact that U.S. racial categories don't accommodate Latinos well, as evinced by nearly 40 percent of Latino respondents to the 2010 census identifying as other, or the fact that from 192939 the U.S. illegally deported 600,000 citizens of Latino descent. While the authors stop short of drawing clear conclusions, and the quoted figures occasionally alternate between percentages and raw numbers, each concise chapter is thoroughly researched, with extensive citations for further reading. An accessible and stimulating primer.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
