Talk about Everything You Need to Know About Latino History: 2003 Edition

Very comprehensive and useful in the classroom. The history is educational without being dry or boring. It's written in a question and answer style with the section headings being inquiring and the section itself answering the question. 10/10 would use in an educational setting for educating people about Latino history. I'm in grad school and this is one of the books that I'll be keeping to refer back to when I'm teaching because I will be living and working in communities with many Latinos.

I found this book a very good primer on Latino history. The question-and-answer format is a little gimmicky, but the section breaks make it easy to find relevant information. Some of the information will quickly turn out of date (like information about Latino baseball players), and some of the "facts" are in debate, as a quick check of Wikipedia will indicate. But this is probably inevitable in such an ambitious work.

There is some hostility to Anglos, especially in comparison to native peoples (i.e. any Anglo violence is described as "unfortunte" or "brutal" while any native violence, including massive human sacrifice, is described matter-of-fact with no qualifying adjectives). But there is also hostility to some Latinos, including Fidel Castro. For the most part, it seems quite impartial.

Overall rating: very good. I read the book cover-to-cover and found it engaging throughout. It also includes helpful tidbits of non-Latino history, like US and world history, for context.

This book should be required reading for everyone in the US. I found it fascinating, and it really helped me get a better perspective on the role of Mexicans in American history. I was educated in Australia, so had no idea of how Mexicans were a part of the U.S. Also gave me a good introduction to Latin American politics, and the role of the U.S. in those countries, as well. I agree with other reviewers that the title didn't quite fit the contents.

I found this book to be wordy and difficult to understand. Didn't enjoy it as much as I was hoping to.

Great reading, informative and educational. Recommend it to all who wishes to learn hispanic history.

Great book. As an educator people often ask for books that are easy to read & comprehend around social justice. I would recommend this for sure. I've referred to it many times.

great value and quick shipping
The difference between the title and the content accounts for the low rating. I would be less disappointed in this book if it had been titled "A Primer on Latino History", or "Latino History for Dummies" or "The Least You Need to Know about Latinos in the United States".
This book was assigned for my 8th grade daughter's humanities class, which uses the vehicle of the history of Latin America to explore world culture. It is appropriate for 8th grade readers--the language is simple, and the question-anwer format is a useful way for young students of history to grasp and organize a lot of data. However, the format gets repetitive and therefore boring after a while. The appropriateness of the book for middle school readers should give you a clue to the intellectual rigor and thoroughness with which the author covers the topic.
Four of the more useful features of the book are: the author makes it plain that Latino culture is not monolithic; the author addresses the strains between various self-identified groups (say, Mexican-Americans and Cuban-Americans); and the many lists of high-achieving people of Latino ancestry, in many different fields; and the bibliography at the end.
For the reader who has no grasp of the relations between the United States and the Spanish-speaking world, this is a good primer or place to start. It is by no means "Everything You Need to Know".
