Latinx (pronounced La-teen-ex) is the gender-neutral term that covers the largest racial minority in the United States, and the poorest but fastest-growing American group, whose political empowerment is altering the balance of forces in a growing number of states. In this groundbreaking discussion, Ed Morales explains how Latinx political identities are tied to a long Latin American history of mestizaje, translatable as mixedness or hybridity, and that this border thinking is both a key to understanding Latinx cultures and a challenge to Americas infamously blackwhite racial regime.

Review:

"The book's deep dive into the crosscurrents of Latinx identity is a powerful reminder that, as Americans wrestle with questions about who is and who is not 'American'--and, indeed, questions about what it means to be an American in the 21st century--the nation can benefit immensely from the robust inclusion and understanding of a community that has spent generations grappling with nearly every facet of its own identity."
--Julian Castro, New York Times

"Despite their long history in the United States, Latinx have never been more misunderstood than today. Morales offers a necessary history lesson and a provoking argument about the key role they could potentially play in fostering an intersectional politics around gender, sexuality, nationality and race. A hopeful intervention, just when we need it most."
--Arlene Dávila, author of Culture Works

"Scholar and journalist Ed Morales has written an evocative work of critique that weaves together memoir, history, and critical race theory in ways that deepen our understanding of the evolving nature of Latinx identity and politics. Hemispheric in approach and capacious in scope, Latinx is an eloquent meditation on the political and cultural possibilities of a population that is both growing and heterogeneous."
--Cristina Beltrán, author of The Trouble with Unity

"This is a book of immense national importance to Latinos and to the rest of America, too. Morales explores a complex cultural ethnicity, illuminating another practice of being American and another future for the Americas."
--Victor Hernández Cruz, author of Beneath the Spanish

"Latinx is an erudite, comprehensive, politically astute, often poetic, and racially deep analysis of a quickly growing racialized group in the US. Morales covers Latinx history from the conquest to Trump's victory while providing a cogent vision for how they may advance their standing in the mean streets of America. Every progressive needs to read this book."
--Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, author of Racism Without Racists

"A sprawling study of Hispanic identity in the United States ... Ed Morales stresses the 'in-between space' that Latinos inhabit, crossing racial, national, cultural and gender identities and sometimes falling into the cracks."
--Carlos Lozada, Washington Post

"The term Latinx is here to stay, and according to journalist and author Ed Morales, it's reflective of the mixed-race and multicultural history of Latinos--and our country's future ... Ed Morales examines how Latinx people figure into America's conversations about race and ethnicity, while exploring the contradictions surrounding Latino American identity."
--Raul A. Reyes, NBC News

"An important contribution."
--Morning Star
