Editorial Reviews

"The most comprehensive encyclopedia on Latinos in the U.S. that has ever been compiled. There is no other encyclopedia that details the historical, economic, political, and sociological experiences of Latinos and Latinas in the U.S. Other dictionaries, anthologies or encyclopedias havefocused upon exclusive disciplines such as literature or history; however, I know of no other wide-ranging collection that crosses fields of study and includes all groups of U.S. Latinos. While educators, students and lay people will utilize the encyclopedia, policymakers and governmentadministrators will also refer to the four-volume collection when they want to reliable details on Puerto Ricans, Salvadorans, Cubans, Dominicans, or Chicanos, for example. An outstanding, timely collection. " -- Emma Perez, Associate Professor, Department of Ethnic Studies, University of Colorado,Boulder
