Overview

Through the prism of Jesse Lee Peterson’s fascinating life experience and his history of grassroots community work on the streets of riot-torn south-central Los Angeles, Peterson and Stetson examine the violations of common sense and sound thinking that the current civil rights establishment constantly perpetrates against the American public. Peterson and Stetson point the way out of the statist mentality overtaking our public life, advocating a new culture of self-responsibility and moral renewal able to resuscitate the sagging spirits of an American public accustomed to looking everywhere but within for the solutions to their personal and political problems.

Endorsed by bestselling authors Shelby Stele and Dinesh D’Souza, this insightful work—with a foreword from bestselling ethicist Dennis Prager and “A Declaration of Racial Commonsense” signed by some of the leading social critics in the nation—is certain to provoke intense debate and discussion.

Editorial Reviews

Author, The Content of Our Character - Shelby Steele
“From Rage to Responsibility does what the entire field of American sociology fails to do. It makes the point that traditional values are transformative in themselves and, therefore, the best antidotes to social dysfunction. Peterson knows what the sociologists miss: that black Americans are simply human beings who find themselves, like all human beings, through the structure, struggle, and sacrifice of living by demanding values.

Bestselling author, Illiberal Education and The End of Racism - Dinesh D’Souza
“From Rage to Responsibility is more than the story of one man’s political odyssey. It chronicles the transformation of the civil rights challenges facing America, and points the way out of our racial dilemma.”
author, Pick a Better Country: An Unassuming Colored Guy Speaks His Mind About America - Ken Hamblin
“Our nation abounds with stories of success from all manner of Americans, only recently though, has it become apparent that not all black Americans subscribe to the ideals of the liberal socialist welfare state. From Rage to Responsibility follows in the tradition of black Americans who have mustered the courage to succeed in our nation, which I easily consider to be the best on the planet. From Rage to Responsibility: Conservative Jesse Lee Peterson and America Today, is a message well w
The Heritage Foundation - Adam Meyerson
“Jesse Lee Peterson knows from his own experience how devastating the absence of fathers has been for black children, and in From Rage to Responsibility he boldly points the way to a loving solution.”
Fox News - Sean Hannity
“With From Rage to Responsibility, Jesse Lee Peterson offers his dynamic antidote to the failed message of the likes of Farrakhan, Jackson, and Sharpton. It is quite simply a must read. This is the medicine necessary to bring about true racial healing in America, and to lift up those who’ve been left behind.”
