Latinos Unidos: 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.
