After the terrorist attacks in New York City on September 11th, much has changed in the United States namely security policy and how America interacts with the rest of the world. But that wasn't the only thing that has changed, U.S. demographics have been changing significantly this century alone. The U.S. Census Bureau found that Latinos accounted for half of the nation's total population growth between the years 2000-2006 and will represent 1 in 4 Americans by 2050. Understanding the Latinos' inclinations towards U.S. security related foreign policy may provide a deeper understanding of how 25% (in 2050) of America's future population will think in terms of foreign policy and security. In efforts to better understand America's largest and fastest growing ethnic community this research analyzes Latino public opinion distinctiveness compared to Black and White public opinion as it pertains to U.S. foreign policy post 9/11, specifically matters relating to terrorism, counter terrorism, military dominance and the use of force to protect national security.

There is a lot of talk--in the public sphere as well as among scholars--about how important Latino voters are to political candidates, but most of the discussion is based on undertheorized 'models' of political activation. Ramírez's book presents a sophisticated argument about both the causes and the future of Latino political power in the United States. Mobilizing Opportunities is destined to become the most important book in Latino politics for the next generation. -Jane Junn, University of Southern California, coauthor of The Politics of Belonging: Race, Public Opinion, and Immigration Mobilizing Opportunities takes several essential steps in helping us to understand whether, where, how, and why the perennially 'sleeping giant' of the Latino electorate is stirring into wakefulness and may soon have a huge impact on American politics. Ramírez places individuals within their crucial political contexts of states and other political jurisdictions; he shows how the media, political parties, and organizations mobilize potential political actors; he attends to variation among Latinos and their political settings; and he makes it clear why cross-sectional analyses do not suffice in our rapidly changing political environment. Each of these moves is a big step forward, and together they make for a really valuable and interesting book. -Jennifer Hochschild, Harvard University, coauthor of Creating a New Racial Order: How Immigration, Multiracialism, Genomics, and the Young Can Remake Race in America Ramírez's compelling book on Latino voter mobilization reminds us that demographics are not destiny, and that the engagement of prospective voters is shaped not just by national trends but by distinct incentives and disincentives in state and local contexts. It's a critical roadmap to Latino political engagement, how it varies across key states, and why. -Michael Jones-Correa, Cornell University, coauthor of Latinos in the New Millennium: An Almanac of Opinion, Behavior, and Policy Preferences

Multiracial Identity and Racial Politics in the...

While pundits point to multiracial Americans as new evidence of a harmonious ethnic melting pot, in reality mixed race peoples have long existed in the United States. Rather than characterize multiracial Americans as a 'new' population, this book argues that instead we should view them as individuals who reflect a new culture of racial identification. Today, identities such as 'biracial' or 'swirlies' are evoked alongside those more established racial categories of white, black Asian and Latino. What is significant about multiracial identities is that they communicate an alternative viewpoint about race: that a person's preferred self-identification should be used to define a person's race. Yet this definition of race is a distinct contrast to historic norms which has defined race as a category assigned to a person based on certain social rules which emphasized things like phenotype, being 'one-drop' of African blood or heritage. In Multiracial Identity and Racial Politics in the United States, Natalie Masuoka catalogues how this cultural shift from assigning race to perceiving race as a product of personal identification came about by tracing events over the course of the twentieth century. Masuoka uses a variety of sources including in-depth interviews, public opinion surveys and census data to understand how certain individuals embrace the agency of self-identification and choose to assert multiracial identities. At the same time, the book shows that the meaning and consequences of multiracial identification can only be understood when contrasted against those who identify as white, black Asian or Latino. An included case study on President Barack Obama also shows how multiracial identity narratives can be strategically used to reduce anti-black bias among voters. Therefore, rather than looking at multiracial Americans as a harbinger of dramatic change for American race relations, this Multiracial Identity and Racial Politics in the United States shows that narratives promoting multiracial identities are in direct dialogue with, rather than in replacement of, the longstanding racial order.
