Latinos' demographic growth and expanding influence could herald advancements in their economic, political, and social status. For this to happen, however, Latino leaders must connected and unify a very diverse population. They must also deal with burgeoning growth - much of which is due to immigration. At the same time, leaders must address myriad issues such as the dropout rate, underemployment, and political underrepresentation. This book will provide Latino leaders with a conceptual framework that integrates culture, leadership, and historical antecedents. It will nourish the roots and traditions that have made leadership such a powerful determinant in advancing the Latino community. Its comprehensive 10 principal leadership model will give Latinos a solid foundation and a culturally-specific approach. And it will appeal to non-Latinos who wish to expand their leadership repertoire, become more culturally adaptable, or learn how to lead the dynamic Latino workforce.

NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED One of America’s historic strengths is the ability to incorporate aspects from many different cultures to create a stronger whole. Our music, literature, sports, architecture, food, and fashion have all benefitted. But current leadership approaches are overwhelmingly written by White males and remain distressingly Eurocentric. Juana Bordas has set out to change this. In this influential book, she shows how incorporating Latino, Black, and American Indian approaches can enrich leadership and offers a more viable model for our expanding multicultural society.

Latinos are on the way to being one-third of the U.S. population by 2050. They're changing the country's talent, marketplace, and political landscapes in unprecedented ways. So why is it that there are so few Latino executives and senior leaders? It's what authors Dr. Robert Rodriguez and Andrés Tomás Tapia call the "4% Shame"—the low percentage of Latino corporate executives today. Autentico: The Definitive Guide to Latino Career Success digs deep to understand the external forces of conscious and unconscious biases, and the internal forces that create tensions for many Latinos about whether to assimilate, opt out, or double down on their cultural identities in their quest to get ahead. Insights have been gleaned from in-depth interviews with twenty highly successful Latino and Latina Boomer executives as well as from focus groups with dozens of GenX and Millennial Latinx leaders. They're synthesized and interpreted through the lenses of the authors' two very different personal experiences as Latino leaders in corporate America.

Sometime in April 2014, somewhere in a hospital in California, a Latino child tipped the demographic scales as Latinos displaced non-Hispanic whites as the largest racial/ethnic group in the state. So, one-hundred-sixty-six years after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo brought the Mexican province of Alta California into the United States, Latinos once again became the largest population in the state. Surprised? Texas will make the same transition sometime before 2020. When that happens, America's two most populous states, carrying the largest number of Electoral College votes, will be Latino. New Mexico is already there. New York, Florida, Arizona, and Nevada are shifting rapidly. Latino populations since 2000 have doubled in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, and South Dakota. The US is undergoing a substantial and irreversible shift in its identity. So, too, are the Latinos who make up these populations. Matt Barreto and Gary M. Segura are the country's preeminent experts in the shape, disposition, and mood of Latino America. They show the extent to which Latinos have already transformed the US politically and socially, and how Latino Americans are the most buoyant and dynamic ethnic and racial group, often in quite counterintuitive ways. Latinos' optimism, strength of family, belief in the constructive role of government, and resilience have the imminent potential to reshape the political and partisan landscape for a generation and drive the outcome of elections as soon as 2016.

From workers' wages to presidential elections, labor unions once exerted tremendous clout in American life. In the immediate post-World War II era, one in three workers belonged to a union. The fraction now is close to one in five, and just one in ten in the private sector. The only thing big about Big Labor today is the scope of its problems. While many studies have explained the causes of this decline, What Unions No Longer Do shows the broad repercussions of labor's collapse for the American economy and polity. Organized labor was not just a minor player during the middle decades of the twentieth century, Jake Rosenfeld asserts. For generations it was the core institution fighting for economic and political equality in the United States. Unions leveraged their bargaining power to deliver benefits to workers while shaping cultural understandings of fairness in the workplace. What Unions No Longer Do details the consequences of labor's decline, including poorer working conditions, less economic assimilation for immigrants, and wage stagnation among African-Americans. In short, unions are no longer instrumental in combating inequality in our economy and our politics, resulting in a sharp decline in the prospects of American workers and their families.
