As the author makes clear, not only are Latinos a religious community, but their religious institutions, in particular faith-based organizations, inform daily life and politics in Latino communities to a considerable degree. Timely and discerning, this unique scholarly work addresses this increasingly powerful political force. Concentrating on urban areas in the South Bronx, Philadelphia, and Chicago, the author provides a systematic look at the spiritual, social, and cultural influence Latino faith-based organizations have provided in American life as well as in understanding Latino social and political involvement in the United States."@en ;
