Hector Tobar is a very good writer

Hector Tobar is a very good writer. This is the third book I've read written by him. Being myself an immigrant born in Italy, who lived in Guatemala (where Hector is from) for 15 years; this book is interesting but upsetting. Hector seems to hope that one day this great country will be taken over by hispanics. He is so proud of the fact that even middle America has been taken over by Mexicans.

Tobar (2005) explained that although Hispanic immigrants to the United States are finding that their identities are transnational, their bodies and souls able to live between two countries, they are also finding themselves culturally dislocated and oppressed. From Mexico to American College Campuses: Hispanic Immigration, Interpersonal Relationships and Identity Formation. These barriers appear to be intricate parts of the American ethos and ideology.

That same century ended with Spanish-speaking chicken workers and furniture makers building the Catholic Church that rises on the edge of town, on a hill overlooking the forests where, in still other centuries, men with bayoneted rifles marched into battle, and Creek Indian women washed clothes in the rivers.

A tour of Spanish-American life informs readers on how its Spanish-speaking citizens are changing the notion of what it means to be a United States citizen in unexpected ways, citing the Spanish population's new role as the largest American minority, the author's own family history, and the complex variations of Spanish-American cultures from different geographical regions. 20,000 first printing.

<a href = "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000EXYZO0/sr=8-1/qid=1145655770/ref=pd_bbs_1/102-4884275-2942513?%5Fencoding=UTF8">Translation Nation</a> by <a href = "[...]">Hector Tobar</a> is an absolute must read considering all that is currently happening with immigration litigation and the bills that are being proposed regarding illegal immigration into the United States. Tobar, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, takes a look at the insurgence of Mexican and Central American immigrants across the border into the United States; he looks at their motivations for doing so and tells their stories. To do so, he interviewed a few illegal immigrants and their guides, listened to Cubans debate the Elian Gonzalez matter, travelled to Central America, and infiltrates the various markets in Nebraska and the South where many migrant workers go to find work.

Tobar eloquently describes the process that many face in coming to the United States. You leave the book feeling like you have followed various people through their experiences and motivations. I put this book down feeling like I had a better grasp on the complexities of these sorts of issue. However, the book did have a weakness: towards the middle of the book, before Tobar gets into his experiences working in factories, the stories told get repetitive. I also have to wonder how "authentic" of an experience that Tobar had while working in these factories being that he was an educated man that could draw on a safety net if he had to, whereas the people that he was writing about and working with don't necessarily have that safety net.

All in all, an important and highly recommended read.

Northwest of Atlanta, a thriving community of Latinos has recreated the town of Dalton, Georgia. Bused in years ago to work in the carpet factories, these immigrants are now part of the largest minority in America, which number more than 13 percent of our population.

Though many come to Los Angeles, this Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist insists that reality, for most Hispanics, is far from that cliché. Using a story-based approach based on interviews and experiences he lived, Tobar demonstrates that significant changes are underway for our country and citizens. Fascinating reading - and essential for anyone who wants to understand who we are becoming, as a nation.
I was excited by the title and the groovy cover... and the reputation of the author. But I was greatly disappointed. I only bothered to read one chapter. It was so simplistic and lacking in analysis and it was obvious that the author did very little research. I think the topic is very important and I hope someone else tries to tackle it in a more serious way that is still accessible to the average reader. Anyway, anyone want it? I'm putting up for resale right now... I'm the lowest price.
