With a population of 40 million and growing, the United States witnessed Latinos becoming the largest minority in America in 2003 -- creating a voting bloc with the potential to determine the outcome of elections throughout the nation.
In The Latino Wave, award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos argues that the political party that can correctly understand the wants and needs of Hispanics will triumph at the polls. Ramos deftly clarifies these points, among many others, and explains why it's necessary to bridge the gap of misunderstanding that exists between Latinos and non-Latinos.
With insight from the nation's Latino political luminaries and interviews with Hispanics living across the United States, Ramos reveals who these New Americans really are -- and what it means for the country.
