Review of Hispanic Spaces, Latino Places: Community and Cultural Diversity in Contemporary America, ed. Daniel D. Arreola

Irazabal Zurita, Clara E.

A welcome addition to the understudied field of Latino cultures and their linkages to place, this book transcends the common approaches to the study of demographic, racial, political, and cultural changes brought about by the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S., to focus instead on Latinos' "different geographies, and social adjustments to diverse places" (p. 1). Contributors were selected from presenters at the 2002 Association of American Geographers meeting in Los Angeles, but most of the authors are not Latino or female.
