Out of the Barrio Toward a New Politics of Hispanic Assimilation

By Linda Chavez
Basic Books 1992 ISBN: 978-0465054312

About the Book

Are Hispanics “making it”—achieving the American dream following the pattern of other ethnic groups? This controversial book shatters the myth that 20 million Hispanics—fast becoming the nation’s largest minority—are a permanent underclass. Chavez considers the radical implications for bilingual education, immigration policy, and affirmative action.
