Harvest of Empire: A History of Latinos in America
Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating(1 customer review)
The first new edition in ten years of this important study of Latinos in U.S. history, Harvest of Empire spans five centuries—from the European colonization of the Americas through the 2020 election. Latinos are now the largest minority group in the United States, and their impact on American culture and politics is greater than ever. With family portraits of real-life immigrant Latino pioneers and accounts of the events and conditions that compelled them to leave their homelands, Gonzalez highlights the complexity of a segment of the American population that is often discussed but frequently misrepresented. This landmark history is required reading for anyone wishing to understand the history and legacy of this influential and diverse group.
Juan González is an award-winning columnist for the New York Daily News and author of Harvest of Empire: A History of Latinos in America and co-author of News for All the People. He is the co-host of Democracy Now!
