Summary

Since late 2001, more than fifty percent of the babies born in California have been Latino. When these babies reach adulthood, they will, by sheer force of numbers, influence the course of the Golden State. This essential study, based on data gathered over several decades, paints a vivid and energetic portrait of Latino society in California. Hayes-Bautista provides a wealth of detail about Latinos' work ethics, family strengths, and business establishments, and he describes the surprisingly robust health profile that includes an average life expectancy for Latinos five years longer than that of the general population. Covering one hundred years, this complex, fascinating analysis suggests that the future of Latinos in California will be neither complete assimilation nor unyielding separatism. Instead, the development of a distinctive regional identity will be based on Latino definitions of what it means to be American.
