Product Details


"An elegant writer and a wise analyst, Roberto Suro has produced one of the most searching books in years on immigration and America’s Latinos. It reflects an independent mind unafraid to break with orthodoxies, and the compassionate heart of a writer who is proud to be an American and proud of his Latin forebears."–E. J. Dionne

"With a welcome indifference to Mexican or American political correctness, Suro brilliantly explains how and why millions of Latin Americans immigrate to the United States. Strangers Among Us tells a sad and heroic story with the kind of insight and frankness that is usually absent in the debate on immigration in the United States."–Jorge G. Castañeda

"Roberto Suro appreciates, indeed courts, what many journalists disdain: complexity and subtlety in his analysis. He explains who Latinos are and how they’re ‘transforming’ America, and at the same time he shows why Latino Americans, like any minority or immigrant group, defy convenient categorization."–William J. Bennett

"Roberto Suro’s Strangers Among Us is a powerful antidote to the American xenophobia and racism that too often poison the well for the children and grandchildren of hardworking Latino immigrants. In this brilliant and humane book, Suro argues persuasively that our fear of these immigrants, who will be our largest ethnic minority in the coming century, is the greatest obstacle to their productive assimilation."–Victor Perera

"A really important book, full of solid research that leads to some surprising–and disturbing–conclusions. Roberto Suro knows his stuff and it shows."–Evan Thomas
