Description:

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 Panicis destined to reshape the way Americans view the future of this country.
