The first new edition in 10 years of this important study of Latinos in US history, Harvest of Empire spans five centuries - from the first New World colonies to the first decade of the new millennium. Latinos are now the largest minority group in the United States, and their impact on American popular culture - from food to entertainment to literature - is greater than ever. Featuring family portraits of real-life immigrant Latino pioneers, as well as accounts of the events and conditions that compelled them to leave their homelands, Harvest of Empire is required listening for anyone wishing to understand the history and legacy of this increasingly influential group.
An excellent and informative analysis on how United States policy has impacted the rest of Central and South America throughout our history and the unintentional consequences that we've had to face.
The narrator has a wonderful voice and I never tired of listening to him.

Very informative and mind opening read. I learned more listening to this than an entire semester at college. Loved it!
