Renée Daamen of the Department of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam reviews Latino Immigrants and the Transformation of the US South. The book deals with the socio-political incorporation of Hispanic immigrants in non-traditional immigrant destinations in the American South. It is a compilation of different case studies and interdisciplinary work edited by Odem and Lacy. The multi-method approach is used to examine the immigrant’s economic impact, community building, racial tensions, and responses of local authorities.
