The Encyclopedia of Latinos and Latinas in the United States

01 January 2005

Victor C. Romero contributed the following encyclopedia entries: "Immigration/Deportation Cases and Legislation"; "McKinney v. Saviego"; and "People ex rel. Kimberly v. de la Guerra." This landmark scholarly work offers comprehensive, reliable, and accessible information about the fastest growing minority population in the United States. With an unprecedented scope and cutting-edge scholarship, the Encyclopedia draws together the diverse historical and contemporary experiences in the United States of Latinos and Latinas from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Over 900 A-to-Z articles written by academics, scholars, writers, artists, and journalists, address such broad topics as identity, art, politics, religion, education, health, and history. The Encyclopediafills a void in the historical scholarship of an underserved population. - From the Publisher
