The Invisible Border : Latinos in America Paperback / softback
Although the Rio Grande may be the physical dividing line between Latin America and the United States, an invisible border-a cultural one-also divides Latinos and those in the mainstream U.S. culture. Latinos and Anglos raise their families, conduct business and solve problems in different ways.
How do Anglos successfully live and work with the now 40 million Latinos, America's fastest growing minority group, given the considerable differences in values and behaviors that exist between the two cultures?
The Invisible Border is the first book to examine the Latino's intellectual and emotional relationship to work, family life, identity, friendships, romance, religion, morality, thinking and reasoning and to the Anglo community.
Side-by-side comparisons help deconstruct Latino and Anglo cultural differences, showing the reader how core Latino values, such as the hierarchical family unit and intuitive decision-making, shape behavior and compare with common Anglo ways.
The Invisible Border is an essential resource for the savvy businessperson, politician, teacher, healthcare worker and civil servant-anyone who sees the shift in American demographics and who needs the foresight and cultural awareness to learn how to adapt.
