Sometime in April 2014, somewhere in a hospital in California, a Latino child tipped the demographic scales as Latinos displaced non-Hispanic whites as the largest racial/ethnic group in the state. So, one-hundred-sixty-six years after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo brought the Mexican province of Alta California into the United States, Latinos once again became the largest population in the state. Surprised? Texas will make the same transition sometime before 2020. When that happens, America's two most populous states, carrying the largest number of Electoral College votes, will be Latino. New Mexico is already there. New York, Florida, Arizona, and Nevada are shifting rapidly. Latino populations since 2000 have doubled in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, and South Dakota. The US is undergoing a substantial and irreversible shift in its identity. So, too, are the Latinos who make up these populations. Matt Barreto and Gary M. Segura are the country's preeminent experts in the shape, disposition, and mood of Latino America. They show the extent to which Latinos have already transformed the US politically and socially, and how Latino Americans are the most buoyant and dynamic ethnic and racial group, often in quite counterintuitive ways. Latinos' optimism, strength of family, belief in the constructive role of government, and resilience have the imminent potential to reshape the political and partisan landscape for a generation and drive the outcome of elections as soon as 2016.

Review:

"If you want to get to know us, Hispanics, first read Latino America. Matt Barreto and Gary Segura know what the future will look like. With an independent, non-partisan approach, they brilliantly describe how Latinos are changing the face of America...and everything else. In their book, Latino America, there is a big idea: Latinos are dramatically transforming this country and there is no turning back. Latinos are going from big numbers to new power. California is leading the way but the rest of the nation will follow. Latino America is the key to that future."--Jorge Ramos, News Anchor, Univision/Fusion

"A pertinent, useful study of significant trends in the American political landscape."--"Kirkus Reviews"
