From best-selling author and Emmy Award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos comes a pivotal new book that explores the current and future power of the Latino vote in American politics.The face of the American voter is about to change dramatically. With the growth of the number of Latinos in the United States, there has never been a voting block with the potential to determine the outcome of so many elections, both nationally and locally. Hispanics in America, native-born as well as newly arrived immigrants, will forever alter the way this country votes, and even how the nation views itself.With a staggering population of more than 38 million and growing quickly, Latinos became the largest minority in America in 2003. The monumental effect Hispanics will have on all areas of American culture, especially politics, will be acutely felt as the 2004 presidential election heats up.Ramos argues that the political party that can correctly understand the wants and needs of Hispanics will triumph in most elections throughout the country, pushing forward that party's agenda and solidifying its hold on power.By outlining what political issues are important to them, Ramos underscores why America should care about bridging the gap of misunderstanding that exists between Latinos and non-Latinos, during this, the most divisive presidential election the country has witnessed in decades. 1.

En las elecciones del 2004, hubo tres millones más votantes hispanos que en el año 2000. Los hispanos pusieron al presidente George W. Bush en la Casa Blanca en el 2000 y luego lo reeligieron en el 2004. Es imposible ignorar una influencia tan grande y un voto tan importante. El cambio más dramático que está viviendo este país no tiene nada que ver con la guerra contra el terrorismo o con la economía; tiene que ver, simplemente, con la revolución demográfi ca impulsada por los latinos. Es la Ola Latina. Enel 2002 los latinos se convirtieron, ofi cialmente, en el grupo minoritario más grande de Estados Unidos, superando los 38 millones de habitantes, cosa que no se esperaba que ocurriera hasta dentro de una década más. Para el año 2125 habrá más latinos que blancos (no hispanos) en Estados Unidos. Es decir, los hispanos pasarán de minoría a mayoría. Basándose en entrevistas con los más reconocidos expertos en temas latinos y con hispanos que viven a lo largo yancho de los Estados Unidos, Ramos intenta descifrar lo que signifi ca este sorprendente cambio demográfi co para todos los norteamericanos, hispanos o no, tanto en su vida diaria como en su cultura. Con el profesionalismo, precisión, y sensibilidad que lo caracteriza, Ramos nos muestra quienes son, exactamente, estos nuevos americanos, cuáles son sus intereses políticos y por qué es importante que el resto del país se preocupe porentender lo que es la "experiencia latina". Quien ignore el reto de los latinos, corre el riesgo de darle la espalda al futuro de Estados Unidos.Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish. 1. Spanish.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! East Boston is a neighborhood of nearly 40,000 people that is part of the City of Boston. The community was created by connecting several islands using landfill and was annexed by Boston in 1836. East Boston is separated from the rest of the city by Boston Harbor and bordered by Winthrop, Revere, and the Chelsea Creek. Directly west of East Boston across Boston Harbor is the North End and Boston's Financial District. The neighborhood has long provided a foothold for the latest wave of immigrants, with Irish, Russian Jews and then Italians alternating as the predominant group. Today immigrants from El Salvador, Brazil and elsewhere in Central and South America have made East Boston one of the centers of Latino culture in New England.

'This book offers the reader the best example of how a great idea can, eventually, create a revolution and change a whole community. I met Frank Cruz years ago on the streets of Los Angeles. He witnessed the Latino wave from its beginnings. Frank is a pioneer, a creator, and a fantastic journalist. I doubt he ever expected to be writing his own story. But, if you want to understand us, read this book.' ~ Jorge Ramos, Journalist and Author 'Frank Cruz has cracked open that unmarked box tucked away in America's attic. So afraid to reveal its contents, we forget the jewels it hides. Through his story, Frank lets us peek into our history. A diverse, complicated people with a textured history. Grit, faith and ingenuity -- we shouldn't hide that. Bravo, Frank. ' ~ Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of California Latino Public Broadcasting is dear to my heart and its legitimization of our stories exists because of the guidance and expertise of my compadre Frank Cruz. His wisdom and leadership developed as he broke through barriers in multiple industries and ultimately rose to the top in each of his careers, as he has recounted in this memoir. Through his own story, Frank continues to teach, inspire, and give voice to the Latino experience. ~Edward James Olmos, Actor, Director, Producer, and Activist 'Frank Cruz has lived a life of accomplishment and contributions. He paved an untrodden path of Latino journalistic professionalism and was courageously and determinedly true to his vision. In so doing, he touched many lives and set a stellar example.' ~ Henry Cisneros, former HUD Secretary and San Antonio Mayor 'This important story is very well told and full of good anecdotes, reflections and advice. Frank Cruz's graduate work in history, experience in journalism, and ability to make a point by telling a compelling story, are all put to good use in telling his own unique story which will inform and inspire.' ~ Felix Gutierrez, Journalism Professor Emeritus, USC

Hispanic New York: A Sourcebook
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Over the past few decades, a wave of immigration has turned New York into a microcosm of the Americas and enhanced its role as the crossroads of the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds. Yet far from being an alien group within a 'mainstream' and supposedly pure 'Anglo' America, people referred to as Hispanics or Latinos have been part and parcel of New York since the beginning of the city's history. They represent what Walt Whitman once celebrated as 'the Spanish element of our nationality.' Hispanic New York is the first anthology to offer a comprehensive view of this multifaceted heritage. Combining familiar materials with other selections that are either out of print or not easily accessible, Claudio Ivan Remeseira makes a compelling case for New York as a paradigm of the country's Latinoization. His anthology mixes primary sources with scholarly and journalistic essays on history, demography, racial and ethnic studies, music, art history, literature, linguistics, and religion, and the authors range from historical figures, such as Jose Marti, Bernardo Vega, or Whitman himself, to contemporary writers, such as Paul Berman, Ed Morales, Virginia Sanchez Korrol, Roberto Suro, and Ana Celia Zentella. This unique volume treats the reader to both the New York and the American experience, as reflected and transformed by its Hispanic and Latino components.

'The Luis Tiant story has always been begging to be told in full, and now it has. In collaboration with Saul Wisnia, the ebullient righthander has let us learn about his life in Son of Havana…. It was a career (229-172, 3.30, 49 shutouts) and life well-led, and it should have culminated with him giving an acceptance speech on a July Sunday in Cooperstown a long time ago…Meanwhile, he has a great story to tell. You’ll like it.' —Bob Ryan, Boston Globe “I have said it before and I’ll always say it: If you wanted one person to start a big game, it would be Luis Tiant. Nobody was a tougher competitor—or a better teammate. He meant so much to us, and to the fans. We all loved him.” —Carl Yastrzemski, from the Foreword “Luis is a legend, someone we respect and someone we look up to. It’s hard to imagine, when you look at him, so many things he did that were great for baseball, in his time.” —Pedro Martinez “All of a sudden people who had given up on them—they’re riding the crest. It was clearly Luis Tiant’s wave. I remember a friend of mine who lived about three blocks away, talking about leaving the window open in his apartment and hearing the entire crowd chanting, 'LOO-EEE! LOO-EEE!' across the fence. . . . It was such a resurrection story of a career coming back. This man who was so proud and so great and lost his career—was almost out of baseball—he was theater unto himself. Yaz was great, Fisk was great, but they didn’t chant for them—and you couldn’t hear it blocks away.” —Peter Gammons 'It was like Luis was the father, Luis was the son, Luis was the brother, you know? It was so personal, that’s what it was! It was so personal. To see that spontaneous reception, loud and heartfelt—to have that happen to Luis was just spectacular.' —Carlton Fisk 'A lively memoir...[that] recounts his colorful, bittersweet life on the mound and beyond.' — Washington Post “If you are a baseball fan…you will find much that is thrilling and much that is uplifting in Luis Tiant’s story…The writing style has the sort of punch that fans of big-league sports will like…An impressive memoir…The truly interesting story here for non-baseball fans is the one about an unwilling exile from his homeland who makes good despite many reverses, then returns in triumph to the place where his roots lie.”—InfoDad blog “Tiant is a genuine baseball legend... Son of Havana: A Baseball Journey from Cuba to the Big Leagues and Back is a story that will rock your emotions…Offer[s] a wonderful trip back in time to what the game was like a half century ago, and what a dark-skinned Latino player had to deal with in baseball and society…Everything about Son of Havana screams ‘must read.’”— Utica Observer-Dispatch
