1. For general information (which is widely available from any number of sources), I consulted several websites and books. Unless otherwise cited, I gathered facts primarily from the following websites: www.education-world.com, www.factmonster.com, and www.infoplease.com. I also obtained information from the following authors, whose works are listed in the
section: Halperin Donghi, Ochoa, Rowen, and Stavans.
2. For other interesting viewpoints on the "Hispanic or Latino" debate, see Al Sosa's article at http://home.att.net/~Alsosa/page2.htm, or Richard Vázquez's article at http://www.lasculturas.com/aa/aa070501a.htm.
