“Latinos in New York: Communities in Transition, Second Edition,” a follow up to the comprehensive study of the city’s Latino population published in 1996, is one of the new books by City College of New York faculty. It is co-edited by Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership professors Sherrie Baver, Gabriel Haslip-Viera (Emeritus), and Angelo Falcón, co-founder of the National Institute for Latino Policy.
This new edition captures the most significant continuities, discontinuities, and changes of the last two decades in the local Latino community as a whole and among the various national groups. Critics hail it as timely and relevant as was the first edition.
