A sweeping history of the Latino experience in the United States.
The first new edition in ten years of this important study of Latinos in U.S. history, Harvest of Empire
spans five centuries—from the European colonization of the Americas to through the 2020 election. Latinos are now the largest minority group in the United States, and their impact on American culture and politics is greater than ever. With family portraits of real-life immigrant Latino pioneers, as well as accounts of the events and conditions that compelled them to leave their homelands, Gonzalez highlights the complexity of a segment of the American population that is often discussed but frequently misrepresented. This landmark history is required reading for anyone wishing to understand the history and legacy of this influential and diverse group."A serious, significant contribution to understanding who the Hispanics of the United States are and where they came from." --The New York Times Book Review
"Required reading, not simply for Latinos but for everyone." --Kansas City Star
