“This volume is excellent because it provides a comprehensive look at Latinx patients with dementia. The authors describe different facets of the problem, including context, risk factors, assessment, diagnosis, international factors, and public policy recommendations. Clinicians and researchers who work with the Latinx population will find this fascinating reading.” (Gary B Kaniuk, Doody's Book Reviews, September 4, 2020)
