Praise for Power Shift

Praise for Power Shift

Deeply researched and filled with stories and historical details that will surprise and inform even the most experienced observers, Power Shift is the definitive account of the rise of Latino politics in Los Angeles and California. Neatly weaving between timelines and personalities, Ayón and Pla never shy away from the conflicts and tensions that characterized this evolution — but they also note that the “Latino century” is open to all comers. This is a compelling and important read that both captures the past and provides a blueprint to a more inclusive future.
