Description:

Although the Rio Grande may be the physical dividing line between Latin America and the United States, an invisible border-a cultural one-also divides Latinos and those in the mainstream U.S. culture. Latinos and Anglos raise their families, conduct business and solve problems in different ways. How do Anglos successfully live and work with the now 40 million Latinos, America's fastest growing minority group, given the considerable differences in values and behaviors that exist between the two cultures?
