Award winning journalist Moises Sandoval has updated his 1990 work, which has already received attention by scholars and others seeking to understand Hispanics in the US. Beginning with Pre-Columbian orgins, he chronicles both Spanish and later American conquest, as well as the socio-economic struggles and movements which rose up to counter these conflicts.
From the roots in Indigenous culture and the Spanish conquest, up to the present, Moises Sandoval tells the story of a people struggling to assert their dignity and to claim their own cultural identity in an essentially Anglo church. With Hispanics poised to constitute the majority of Catholics in the U.S., Sandoval paints a hopeful portrait of a new church emerging from the margins, enriched by the diversity of cultures, standing with the poor, and embracing the full experience of its people. It is a story that deserves wide attention.
