Who would have guessed that a book written 6 years ago could have very well been written today. Sadly, not much has changed in the immigration debate and there is still too much xenophobia from many on the right politically. ( )

Examining the past—his own parents’ struggle to be “real” Americans, as well as the plight of other ethnic groups in their quest for that dream—Rivera places the issue of illegal immigration in a historic context, dispelling the myth that we are facing an unprecedented crisis.

An explanation of why America need not fear Latino immigrants. This is a reaction to some of the hate mongers on Television and Radio. Rivera takes apart some of the stereotypes and mythology that some choose to believe about our latest wave of immigrants. Written in an almost chatty style that keeps the reader's interest and helps the flow of his arguments. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451224140, Hardcover)

An account of the Hispanic population?s growth and the changing face of America from world-renowned journalist Geraldo Rivera?now updated with a new Foreword.

Since his infamous confrontation with Bill O?Reilly on The O?Reilly Factor, Emmy® award winner Geraldo Rivera has examined what makes the issue of illegal Hispanic immigration so complex. With widespread fury and frustration directed at Hispanics, the nation?s largest minority, this may be the single most divisive issue in America today? with some citizens blaming illegal immigrants for everything from terrorism to the spread of disease and the loss of jobs.

With unbiased analysis, Rivera exposes the hypocrisy, racism, and ignorance behind anti-immigration sentiments, from both extremists and otherwise ordinary Americans.

An unflinching look at one of today?s biggest issues? and a vital contribution to the ongoing debate?His Panic is destined to reshape the way Americans view the future of this country.

Journalist Rivera examines the growth of the Hispanic population in the U.S., fueled partly by what may be the single most divisive issue in America today: illegal immigration. With objective clarity and personal conviction, Rivera sheds light on an issue that is muddled with confusion and prejudice--and too often blamed for everything from terrorism to welfare. Examining the past--his own parents' struggle to be "real" Americans, as well as the plight of other ethnic groups in their quest for that dream--Rivera places the issue of illegal immigration in a historic context, dispelling the myth that we are facing an unprecedented crisis.--From publisher description.… (more)
