Translation Nation: Defining a New American Identity in the Spanish-Speaking United States
Hector Tobar (au)
Latino-Amer. (LA) are now the largest minority group in the U.S., & by the middle of the century, Spanish-speaking Amer. will make up 25% of the population. Author Tobar introduces us to its past, the present -- & our future. He begins in his native Los Angeles, with the story of his own family, in a city that has become the crucible of an Amer. identity that intertwines Latin & North Amer. traditions. Tobar traces this new “americanismo” across the country. At school board meetings & patriotic parades, in voting booths & on the frontlines in Iraq, LA are fighting for, chasing, achieving, & transforming the American Dream. Tobar shows how they are forging new identities, redefining the experience of the Amer. immigrant, & reinventing the Amer. community.
