About the Authors
  • Latinos in the New Millennium is the most current and comprehensive profile of Latinos in the United States: looking at their social characteristics, group relations, policy positions, and political orientations. The authors draw on information from the 2006 Latino National Survey (LNS), the largest and most detailed source of data on Hispanics in America. This book provides essential knowledge about Latinos, contextualizing research data by structuring discussion around many dimensions of Latino political life in the U.S. The encyclopedic range and depth of the LNS allows the authors to appraise Latinos' group characteristics, attitudes, behaviors, and their views on numerous topics. This study displays the complexity of Latinos, from recent immigrants to those whose grandparents were born in the United States.

    • Provides the broadest available guide to the public opinion, attitudes and behaviors of Latinos residing in the United States
    • Draws on the best existing source of data on Latinos in the US, the 2006 Latino National Survey
    • Presents data in the context of research findings and the literature in the social sciences
