The Oxford Encyclopedia Of Latinos & Latinas In The United States 4 Vol. Set

A landmark scholarly work, The Oxford Encyclopedia of Latinos and Latinas in the United States offers comprehensive, reliable, and accessible information about the fastest growing minority population in the nation. 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 ranging in length from 500 words to 7,500 words written by academics, scholars, writers, artists, and journalists, address such broad topics as identity, art, politics, religion, education, health, and history. Each entry has its own bibliography and cross-references and is signed by its author. Essential for scholarly and professional researchers as well as the classroom and library, The Oxford Encyclopedia of Latinos and Latinas in the United States will fill a void in the historical scholarship of an under-served population. From School Library Journal Grade 9 Up-Similar in scope and in length to Ilan Stavanss Encyclopedia Latina (Grolier, 2005), this multivolume encyclopedia seeks to document the history and experience of Latinos and Latinas in U.S. society since the early Colonial period of this country. Far from being an exclusively biographical resource, it includes more than 700 signed, objective articles on a wide range of topics both general and specific from Baseball, Employment Discrimination, and Religion and Spirituality to Environmental Racism, Teenage Pregnancy, and Tucsonians for a Clean Environment. There are also entries for each of the 50 states; biographical articles represent individuals who are considered to have broken new ground and are not meant to include all prominent Latinos or Latinas. For example, although Joan Baezs mixed heritage (Mexican/Scottish) does not always cause her to be identified as a Latina, ?her commitment to justice for all aligns her with the struggles of Latinas and Latinos in the United States. Each essay ends with cross-references to related articles and a bibliography. Black-and-white photographs and a few tables and charts are scattered throughout the set. A 190-page index is included in volume four. Comparing entries in the Oxford with those in Encyclopedia Latina reveals enough variety in coverage for libraries wanting to provide a range of resources to have both sets. -Ginny Gustin, Sonoma County Library System, Santa Rosa, CA Copyright
