This book explores the extent to which the varied political status of Latinos is changing the meaning of citizenship and belonging in the United States. It brings together broad theoretical considerations of citizenship with discussions of historical and contemporary case studies pertaining to Latinos and current debates on citizenship. Focusing on Latinos' historical and continuing struggles against exclusion, the authors of this anthology discuss issues such as Latinos' multiple national allegiances, dual citizenship, the changing meaning(s) of belonging, their transnational political and social participation, the question of language and citizenship, regional cultural citizenship and loyalties, and the mobilization of Latino youth in their struggle to affirm their rights and belonging in US society.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The nation's fast-growing Latino population raises a host of vital issues for American politics in the 21st century. What forms of 'belonging' will Latinos embrace, or be able to embrace? To what extent will ugly forms of nativism re-emerge? Will Latinos work to transform citizenship in more regional, trans-national, or multi-national directions? The stimulating essays collected in Suzanne Oboler's Latinos and Citizenship provide enriching food for thought on these and many other crucial questions."

- Rogers M. Smith, Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania
