"This chronology provides interesting facts that are not found in other Hispanic histories. Therefore it makes for a very interesting read. This current chronology is recommended for public, school, and academic libraries, especially in areas serving Hispanic students and patrons." --American Reference Books Annual

"[T]he author of Latino Chronology should be commended for a fine effort in bringing to light and presenting in one compact source some of the most memorable moments in the history of the U.S. Latinos and Hispanic populations. This handy reference work is recommended for public libraries serving Latino communities and academic libraries that support curricula in Latin American/Latino studies." --Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin

"Figueredo has gathered significant accomplishments of Latinos and placed them within their historical, social, political, religious and environmental contexts, starting with prehistory and leading up to 2006. He describes the first cultures and civilizations in detail, disastrous and deadly first contacts with Europeans and the process of assimilation with Spanish culture, the ongoing methods of discrimination and the efforts by individuals and groups to counter it, the development of modern American Latino culture, and the continuing themes of race, society and religion that run through modern Latino life. This is very accessible and well-organized and includes a glossary, bibliography and comprehensive index that serves as a good cross-reference." --Reference & Research Book News
