For decades, Latinos/Hispanics have been the proverbial "sleeping giant" who slept through the 70s, 80s, 90s, and now in the first decade of the twenty-first century, continues to sleep. In fact, in her book Fluid Borders: Latino Power, Identity, and Politics in Los Angeles, Dr. Lisa García Bedolla quotes Otto Santa Ana: "The Mexican sleeping giant never woke up. It died in its sleep in the summer of 1993." Fluid Borders, however, is not a book about a funeral, but rather a well-researched, thoughtful, and timely book about Latino, but principally Mexican, political behavior.
