Hispanic Spaces, Latino Places: Community and Cultural Diversity in Contemporary America

Altha J. Cravey, Professor of Geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, reviews Hispanic Spaces, Latino Places: Community and Cultural Diversity in Contemporary America. The book describes local places in the United States that are claimed or transformed by Latinos. The book makes use of census maps and breaks down the broad category “Latino” by nationality- including Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Guatemalans, Salvadorans, Colombians, and Ecuadorians. It studies several U.S. cities described as continuous settlements of Latinos as well as new emerging communities of Latinos.
