This bibliography addresses eight major topics. It begins by locating research on Latino politics within the traditions of American political research. It then reviews theoretical attempts to explain Latino politics; describes major findings regarding subfields and specific themes such as values, partisanship, policy preferences and electoral behavior; and suggests numerous themes that need to be addressed. It should be thought of as the first installment of a much more comprehensive review of methods and topics that are central to an inclusive but specialized evaluation of Latino politics research. “Latino” is a collective label that includes individuals of all Latin American nationalities, particularly in the US context; the term came into use after 1980. Prior to that, Latin American groups were identified by nationality—for instance, as Mexican American, Puerto Rican, or Cuban. “Latino” may be used interchangeably with “Hispanic,” and the feminine form “Latina” is often applied to women and topics specific to them.
