Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Peterson, a motivational speaker, presents an analysis of contemporary liberalism and the havoc it is wreaking in American culture. Through the prism of his life experience and his history of grassroots community work on the streets of south-central Los Angeles, he examines the violations of common sense and sound thinking that the civil rights establishment and liberal lobbies perpetuate against the American public. He advocates a new culture of responsibility and moral renewal. Peterson is founder of an organization devoted to rebuilding families, and hosts a live call-in radio talk show. Annotation c.
