Encyclopedia of Latino Popular Culture, Volume 2
American culture has been impacted by contributions from Mexico and the rest of Central America, South America, and the Spanish Caribbean. These contributions and their adaptations in the United States are showcased in nearly 500 essay entries. The Latino population is the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. society, and this encyclopedia is the first to focus on the breadth of Latino cultural expression.--[book cover].
