Its argument is three-fold. First, it argues that the drive to forge the \"Spanish-speaking vote,\" as it was first called--and not simple demographic growth--that led the federal government to recognize \"Hispanics\" as a national minority group, shattering forever the nation\'s black\/white binary.

Indeed, the making of the \"Hispanic Vote\" revealed an \"identity politics\" deeply entwined with \"class\" considerations. Third, the book demonstrates that the \"Hispanic\" constituency\'s emergence rested on a fundamental uncertainty: Was Hispanic politics about assembling a coalition of existing peoples, or rather a vehicle to transcend national origin differences to articulate the values and desires of a new of U.S.-based community?\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"The many political communities of Latino America -- Viva Kennedy and the nationalization of \"Latin American\" politics -- Civil rights and the recognition of a \"national minority\" -- Becoming Spanish-speaking, becoming Spanish origin -- Mastering the \"Spanish-speaking concept\" -- Liberal Democrats and the meanings of \"unidos\" -- The \"brown mafia\" and middle-class Spanish-speaking politics in 1972 -- The \"impossible dream\" of the Hispanic Republican movement -- Securing representation in a multicultural democracy -- Latino liberalism in an era of limits -- The \"New Hispanic conservatives\".<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/8977804671<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The rise of the Latino vote : a history<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1090012556<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780674737440<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1090012556<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
