Latinos make up the fastest growing population segment in the US, and by the middle of the next century, they will outnumber all other minority groups combined. Even more significant is the fact that within a few years, Latinos will number more than a quarter of the nation's work force; this is more than three times their proportion in the general population.
"Latino Social Movements" discusses the socioeconomic and cultural consequences of the changing US population in the light of globalization. It calls attention to the increasing significance of class and the system of global capitalism that underlies political relations of power. Focusing on the place of labor, class, patriarchy and capital, this collection relates these objective realities with the subjective context of popular attempts to transform the existing socio-economic conditions of Latino life.
