Overview

With our country worried about war, changing politics, and a recession-or even another great depression-Peabody and Emmy award-winning journalist Geraldo Rivera delivers keen insight and hope in The Great Progression, a prophetic book on how Hispanics will help revitalize our declining economy, energize our distressed troops, and invigorate our transitioning national government.

Featuring candid and revealing interviews with prominent Hispanics-such as Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Jennifer Lopez, and George Lopez. The Great Progression presents a fascinating look at the impact Hispanics are making on the social, economic, and political history of the United States. From those breaking boundaries in politics to visionary leaders in the business world to everyday people willing to serve, Hispanics' involvement in society is at an all-time high-and growing exponentially. Geraldo's fearless and judicious reporting addresses the nation's most critical issues under the Obama administration, and enlightens those who seek real change and a new, more progressive American era.

Editorial Reviews

In His Panic, journalist and TV commentator Geraldo Rivera explained why Americans fear the ever-growing Hispanic presence in our midst. In The Great Progression, he turns the tables on those doubters and describes how Hispanics are actually revitalizing our economy and energizing our national defense. Rivera's upbeat thesis and his detailed presentation make this book a welcome addition to debates that until now have generally focused narrowly on illegal immigration. Well-articulated Hispanic pride.
