Summary "Hispanics and the Future of America presents details of the complex story of a population that varies in many dimensions, including national origin, immigration status, and generation. The papers in this volume draw on a wide variety of data sources to describe the contours of this population, from the perspectives of history, demography, geography, education, family, employment, economic well-being, health, and political engagement. They provide a source of information for researchers, policy makers, and others who want to better understand the fast-growing and diverse population that we call "Hispanic.""--Jacket.
