As the largest and youngest minority group in the United States, the 60 million Latinos living in the U.S. represent the second-largest concentration of Hispanic people in the entire world, after Mexico. Needless to say, the population of Latinos in the U.S. is causing a shift, not only changing the demographic landscape of the country, but also impacting national culture, politics, and spoken language. While Latinos comprise a diverse minority group-with variousreligious beliefs, political ideologies, and social values-commentators on both sides of the political divide have lumped Latino Americans into a homogenous group that is often misunderstood.Latinos in the United States: What Everyone Need to Know® provides a comprehensive, multifaceted exploration of Latino American history and culture and the forces shaping this minority group in the U.S. From exploring the origins of the term "latino" and examining what constitutes Latin America, to tracing topical issues like DREAMers, the mass incarceration of Latino males, and the controversial relationship between Latin America and the United States, Ilan Stavans seeks tounderstand the complexities and unique position of Latino Americans. Throughout he breaks down the various subgroups within the Latino minority (Mexican-Americans, Dominican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Puerto Ricans on the mainland, and so on), and the degree to which these groups constitute-or don't-a homogenouscommunity, their history, and where their future challenges lay. He sees Latino culture as undergoing dramatic changes as a result of acculturation-changes that are fostering a new "mestizo" identity that is part Hispanic and part American. However, Latinos living in the United States are also impacting American culture. As Ilan Stavans argues, no other minority group will have a more decisive impact on the future of the United States.

Odisea / The Odyssey

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. El viaje de Ulises se ha convertido en un mito universal y la Odisea en una lectura para todos los tiempos. Tras una década de guerra, una ofensa al dios Poseidón ha alejado de su reino al astuto héroe otros diez años, condenado a navegar sin rumbo y a sufrir las más diversas vicisitudes. La Odisea, que sucede a la caída de Troya, sigue los pasos de Ulises -el nombre latino de Odiseo, que esta traducción adopta- y nos acerca al relato de su largo peregrinaje para volver al hogar, Ítaca. Los mitos que configuran esta gran epopeya, la capacidad de Homero para retratar la vida en el Mediterráneo a finales del 2000 a.C. y la irrupción de un héroe deseoso de regresar a la patria han dejado huella en los grandes autores de la literatura -de Virgilio a Joyce- y han convertido la Odisea en una pieza clave de la cultura universal. La presente edición cuenta con un prólogo y la magnífica versión en verso de Fernando Gutiérrez, así como una introducción y un aparato de notas elaborado por el traductor y periodista Joan Casas, y un epílogo escrito por el poeta, ensayista y traductor José Ángel Valente. «Los mortales se atreven, ¡ay!, siempre a culpar a los dioses porque dicen que todos sus males nosotros les damos, y son ellos que, con sus locuras, se atraen infortunios que el Destino jamás decretó.» ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The epic tale of Odysseus's journey home - one of the earliest and greatest works of Western literature. If the Iliad is the world's greatest war epic, the Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of an everyman's journey through life. Odysseus' reliance on his wit and wiliness for survival in his encounters with divine and natural forces during his ten-year voyage home to Ithaca after the Trojan War is at once a timeless human story and an individual test of moral endurance. E. V. Rieu's translation has long been beloved and celebrated by scholars and readers alike, and for this Penguin Classics edition, classicist D. C. H. Rieu has revised the work of his father. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
