To achieve justice and equal protection under the law, Latinos have turned to the U.S. court system to assert and defend their rights. Some of these cases have reached the United States Supreme Court, whose rulings over more than a century have both expanded and restricted the legal rights of Latinos, creating a complex terrain of power relations between the U.S. government and the country's now-largest ethnic minority. To map this legal landscape, Latinos and American Law examines fourteen landmark Supreme Court cases that have significantly affected Latino rights, from Botiller v. Dominguez in 1889 to Alexander v. Sandoval in 2001. Carlos Soltero organizes his study chronologically, looking at one or more decisions handed down by the Fuller Court (1888-1910), the Taft Court (1921-1930), the Warren Court (1953-1969), the Burger Court (1969-1986), and the Rehnquist Court (1986-2005). For each case, he opens with historical and legal background on the issues involved and then thoroughly discusses the opinion(s) rendered by the justices. He also offers an analysis of each decision's significance, as well as subsequent developments that have affected its impact. Through these case studies, Soltero demonstrates that in dealing with Latinos over issues such as education, the administration of criminal justice, voting rights, employment, and immigration, the Supreme Court has more often mirrored, rather than led, the attitudes and politics of the larger U.S. society.

The first casebook of its kind, Latinos and the Law contains a rich array of issues relating to this important and rapidly growing group, ranging from legal and social construction, to language, education, immigration, stereotyping, workplace discrimination, rebellious lawyering, and the special issues of Latinas. Beginning with histories of the main subgroups, early sections discuss theoretical approaches such as post-colonialism, critical race theory, and the black-white binary of race that have proven useful in understanding the Latino/a condition. With a rich selection of cases, statutes, documents, notes, questions, and bibliographic references, this volume represents a welcome resource for teachers, scholars, and students.
