They are sometimes called the people who died twice, once at the hands of the Spaniards and their brutal process of civilization, then at the hands of Anglos, practicing a subtler exploitation. They are Latinos, the fastest-growing minority in the United States. Earl Shorris's deeply moving narrative-enlivened by biographical sketches of Mexican Americans, Cuban Americans, Puerto Ricans, and many others struggling with the burden of a rich and terrible history-illuminates every aspect of the Latino experience in America, from language to education to social and political organization.

"[A] powerful, beautifully-written and thoughtful book...likely to remain unequaled in its sweep and profundity for some time to come."-J. Jorge Klor de Alva, The New York Times Book Review

"A smart, perceptive and wonderfully readable book.... Should be required reading for anyone who would hope to understand America."-Gerald Volgenau, Boston Globe
