About this product
- DescriptionCoalition formation is mounting among Latis as they acquire greater strength in U.S. politics. This collection of essays is the first complete study of Lati political coalitions. It elaborates on Lati Empowerment: Progress, Problems, and Prospects (Greenwood Press, 1988), an earlier collection by the same editors that studied Lati empowerment in general. The contributors to Latis and Political Coalitions detail how coalitional politics have become a major avenue of empowerment for the Lati community. The contributors illuminate the historical and cyclical changes in the political life of the Lati community by exploring coalitional politics at all levels and stages: from new coalitions attempting to broaden their power base to established organizational coalitions working to support or defeat legislation. The media, community response, language policy, immigration reform, the labor movement, municipal politics, and voter mobilization are among the topics covered. This collection concludes with theoretical insights about mirity group coalitions and offers a comprehensive bibliography. It will be valuable for courses and research in political science, sociology, Chica studies, and history.
