Eleven essays presented by Montero-Sieburth (leadership in education, U. of Massachusetts at Boston) and Meléndez (management and urban policy, The New School) examine how the rapidly expanding Latino population in the United States its impacting American society and some of the more significant social, educational, and legal issues facing Latinos in the US today. An overview of demographic change is followed by individual case studies of Dominicans and Puerto Ricans in the United States, Mexicans in New England, and Cubans in Miami. Issue-oriented contributions discuss acculturation and social supports for Latino college students, parent educational involvement among Mexicana/Latina mothers, key issues of policing in the Latino community, Latino access to health and social programs, social networks and Latino immigrants in the labor market, and settlement and incorporation of Latinos in a small town in Massachusetts.
