This major demographic shift and its implications for both the United States and the growing Hispanic population make "Multiple Origins, Uncertain Destinies: Hispanics and the American Future" and its companion volume "Hispanics and the Future of America" essential to better comprehend the issues and future prospects that face the United States. The 2 book set includes "Multiple Origins, Uncertain Destinies: Hispanics and the American Future".This book from the National Research Council looks carefully at the diverse populations encompassed by the term Hispanic, representing immigrants and their children and grandchildren from nearly two dozen Spanish-speaking countries. It describes the trajectory of the younger generations and established residents, and it projects long-term trends in population aging, social disparities, and social mobility that have shaped and will shape the Hispanic experience.show more
