A first-of-its-kind book that seriously and profoundly examines what it means philosophically to be Latino and where Latinos fit in American society. Rejecting answers based on stereotypes and fear fed by the enormous growth of Latino numbers in the US; it offers, instead, a fresh perspective and clearer understanding of Latin American thought and culture.
