“In this book of beauty and fierce intelligence, David E. Hayes-Bautista, our maître-penseur of the Latino experience, paints in broad brushes and careful detail the saga of Latinos in California. Over the last two and a half centuries, Latinos have made and remade the state. In La Nueva California, we have a book that does justice to the complexity of one of the great journeys in the American tradition.”—Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco, Wasserman Dean, Graduate School of Education & Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles, and coauthor of Latinos: Remaking America
"Dr. Hayes-Bautista paints a vivid and fascinating portrait of Latinos in California—one that is elegant in fact and theory. In this book, we learn the unvarnished truth of yesterday, which helps to illuminate the unbridled path of tomorrow. La Nueva California is a testament to the genius of Dr. Hayes-Bautista and his commitment to social justice. Brilliant work.”— Carmela Castellano-Garcia, Esq., President and CEO, California Primary Care Association (CPCA)
"David Hayes Bautista is an insatiable researcher who is able to dig into lost, forgotten, and even hidden data to bring to light an entire new view of Latinos in California. This is not only a book full of facts, but an exciting text that explains the vicissitudes of the life of Latinos in California, and the ones arriving in this State even now. Based on his knowledge of the rich and vibrant Latino cultures represented in California, Hayes Bautista is able to foretell the future of a community that has always been a part of the success story of the United States of America and is essential to its future.?"—Gabriela Teissier, journalist and news anchor, Univision
“Dr. Hayes-Bautista provides first rate scholarship and analysis for understanding the vital role that Latinos have long played in shaping the fabric of our nation and how they have long supported the traditional American values of freedom and equality. His work provides a data-rich resource to policymakers and citizens alike interested in building a more inclusive and prosperous America."—Kevin Richardson, Member, Board of Visitors, Pepperdine University Graduate School of Public Policy and mayor, village of Lake Barrington, Illinois
