More than 53 million Latinosnow constitute the largest, fastest-growing, and most diverse minority group inthe United States, and the nation's political future may well be shaped byLatinos' continuing political incorporation. In the 2012 election, Latinosproved to be a critical voting bloc in both Presidential and Congressionalraces; this demographic will only become more important in future Americanelections. Using new evidence from the largest-ever scientific survey addressedexclusively to Latino/Hispanic respondents, LatinoPolitics en Ciencia Politica explores political diversity within the Latinocommunity, considering how intra-community differences influence politicalbehavior and policy preferences.

The editors and contributors, all noted scholars of raceand politics, examine key issues of Latino politics in the contemporary UnitedStates: Latino/a identities (latinidad),transnationalism, acculturation, political community, and racial consciousness.The book contextualizes today's research within the history of Latino politicalstudies, from the field's beginnings to the present, explaining how systematicanalysis of Latino political behavior has over time become integral to thestudy of political science. LatinoPolitics en Ciencia Politica is thus an ideal text for learning both thestate of the field today, and key dimensions of Latino political attitudes.
