Summary: If you eat fajitas, listen to Selena, have studied the Spanish-American War, read Julia Alvarez, visited Miami, or seen Charlie Sheen in a movie, you're probably aware that Latino culture is an integral part of American life. But most Americans do not know much about Latino history, or realize the impact it has on the politics, economy, and culture of American life. Everything You Need To Know About Latino History covers the contributions of Spaniards, Mexicans, Puer moreto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, and Central and South Americans whose cultures have given us everything from chocolate to chili peppers, from mambo to machismo, and from Desi Arnaz to Oscar Hijuelos. Presented in a question and answer format, this revised edition includes new information on Central and South Americans, the largest group of new Latino immigrants, the passing of Proposition 187 in California, and how Latino women are playing a larger role in politics and the arts. This accessible reference book is perfect for both the history buff and the curious reader who want to learn more about Latino American history. less
