Dinesh D'Souza was born on April 25, 1961 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. He came to the U.S. in 1978 and attended Union High School in Patagonia, Arizona. He went on to Dartmouth College, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa in English in 1983. While attending Dartmouth, he became the editor of a conservative monthly called The Prospect. The paper ignited controversy during D'Souza's editorship by criticizing the College's affirmative action policies. He also became known as a writer for the Dartmouth Review which was subsidized by several right-wing organizations. After Dartmouth he moved to Washington, D.C. where he was an editor of Policy Review, an influential conservative journal. In 1988 he left the magazine on to serve as an advisor in Ronald Regan's White House. He joined the American Enterprise Institute in 1989 where he was the institute's John M. Olin fellow. He has appeared on several news shows as a political commentator such as: CNN, Glen Beck, and ABC's Nightline. D'Souza's first book, Illiberal Education was published in 1991. Since then, he has written numerous bestselling political commentaries, including: America: Imagine a World Without Her, Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream, Letters to a Young Conservative, and The End of Racism.
