Bookshelf: Latinos in New York: Communities in Transition

National Institute on Latino Policy - The book, close to 500 pages long, brings together leading social analysts, journalists and civil and community advocates on the Latino experience to address issues that have been largely neglected in the literature on New York City. These include the role of race, culture and identity, politics, religion, community development, environmental justice, voting rights, and immigration/migration, subjects that require greater attention both from academic as well as policy perspectives. The book also goes beyond focusing on Puerto Ricans and Dominicans to discuss the state of Central and South American communities. This book, published by the University of Notre Dame Press, is available for sale in print and electronic forms by clicking here.
