Editorial Reviews

"This book is an excellent source for an issue that involves every American today. Certainly after reading this book it is clear we have come a long way (Americans in general) but also we have a long way to go. The minds have been won, now the hearts need to be as well."--Sam Giordanengo,Armstrong Atlantic State University
