Introduction to the U.S. Latina and Latino religious experience
Latinos/Latinas are the largest "minority" in the United States, but the field of U.S. Latino/Latina studies is still in its infancy. This work represents the first single volume ever published on the U.S. Latino/Latina religious experience, an area that is even less explored. A carefully selected group of experts examines the major sub-groups of Latinos/Latinas including Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Cuban Americans, along with some of the lesser studied groups such as Dominicans and Central Americans. In addition, the volume includes important thematic chapters on the roles of art, film, health care, literature, music, politics, and women's influence in the U.S. Latino/Latina religious experience.
