Description


Over the past decade, much attention has been given to examining the growing political influence of Latinos in the United States in order to define the so-called Latino vote. The existence of a coherent, pan-ethnic Latino political agenda is, as this book shows, not only highly debatable,
but democratically unviable.

Situated at the intersection of political theory and Latino studies, The Trouble with Unity is a nuanced critique of civic Latinidad and the Latino electoral and protest politics that work to erase diversity and debate in favor of images of commonality. Cristina Beltr n looks at key moments in U.S.
Latino political history through the lens of political, feminist, and cultural thought to provide a theoretically driven account of the many ways in which Latinos lay claim to the public realm. In its innovative approach to the realities of Latino protest politics, The Trouble with Unity advances
both social movement and democratic political theory.
