Summary "Latinos in the New Millennium provides essential knowledge about Latinos in the United States, contextualizing research data by structuring discussion around dimensions of Latino political life in the U.S"--Provided by publisher.
This book is a 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 study displays the complexity of Latinos, from recent immigrants to those whose grandparents were born in the United States.
