More than 53 million Latinos now constitute the largest,
fastest-growing, and most diverse minority group in the United
States, and the nation's political future may well be shaped by
Latinos' continuing political incorporation. In the 2012 election,
Latinos proved to be a critical voting bloc in both Presidential
and Congressional races; this demographic will only become more
important in future American elections. Using new evidence from the
largest-ever scientific survey addressed exclusively to
Latino/Hispanic respondents, Latino Politicsen Ciencia Politica
explores political diversity within the Latino community,
considering how intra-community differences influence political
behavior and policy preferences.
The editors and contributors, all noted scholars of race and
politics, examine key issues of Latino politics in the contemporary
United States: Latino/a identities (latinidad), transnationalism,
acculturation, political community, and racial consciousness. The
book contextualizes today's research within the history of Latino
