Synopsis

In the spring of 2006, millions of Latinos across the country participated in the largest civil rights demonstrations in American history. In this timely and highly anticipated book, Chris Zepeda-Millan analyzes the background, course, and impacts of this unprecedented wave of protests, highlighting their unique local, national, and demographic dynamics. He finds that because of the particular ways the issue of immigrant illegality was racialized, federally proposed anti-immigrant legislation (H.R. 4437) helped transform Latinos' sense of latent group membership into the racial group consciousness that incited their engagement in large-scale collective action. Zepeda-Millan shows how nativist policy threats against disenfranchised undocumented immigrants can provoke a political backlash - on the streets and at the ballot box - from not only 'people without papers', but also naturalized and US-born citizens. Latino Mass Mobilization is an important intervention into contemporary debates regarding immigration policy, social movements, and racial politics in the United States.

Chris Zepeda-Millan is Assistant Professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies and Faculty Chair of the Center for Research on Social Change at University of California, Berkeley. His research has been published in top political science and interdisciplinary journals, and he has been interviewed by several local, national, and international media outlets, including: the Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, La Opinion, Univision, PBS, Colorlines magazine, several Pacifica Network radio stations, as well as Canadian, Japanese, and Vietnamese television stations and newspapers. He has also been an invited contributor to NBC Latino, Latino Decisions, the London School of Economic's USAPP blog, The Progress magazine, and Huffington Post.
