Image two: E-book titled Latino Mayors: Political Change in the Postindustrial City (2018) - synopsis: The vibrant collection Latino Mayors features case studies of eleven Latino mayors in six American cities: San Antonio, Los Angeles, Denver, Hartford, Miami, and Providence. The editors and contributors analyze Latino mayors for their governing styles and policies.
