From Cultural Diversity to the Politics of Solidarity
"Latinos Unidos" presents an unexpected perspective on Latinos-not only as a highly diverse and rapidly growing population in the United States with distinct social, cultural, and economic features-but as a new political force with a cohesive collective ethnic identity. Indeed, Latinos in this country constitute a new political power coming to grips with their global significance. Within two decades, Latino children will constitute a majority in urban public schools around the country. By the mid-21st century, Latinos (along with African Americans) will represent half the U.S. population.

What Reviewers Are Saying
Trueba has written a very intersting book about the importance of education not only for Latinos, but also for the future of the U.S. The complexity and the clarity of argument, the detailed research, and the passionate narrative make this book highly recommended for all levels.--P. Vila, University of Texas at San Antonio "CHOICE, July / August 1999, Vol. 36, No. 11/12 "
