Growing American Roots: Why Our Nation Will Thrive as Our Largest Minority Flourishes

Front Cover
Penguin, Oct 6, 2009 - Political Science - 256 pages
From the highest-ranking Hispanic in congressional history comes an inspiring vision for our country's future.

For Senator Bob Menendez, it's about time the truth about Hispanics and their potential in this nation is brought into the spotlight. Instead of viewing Latinos as the cause of many of America's problems, he sees quite the opposite-and in this book he takes a unique approach by imagining a hopeful future for our nation. With the step-by-step plan that Menendez has devised, the United States' future will be made brighter and more successful precisely because of, not in spite of, the burgeoning influence of the Hispanic population as it "grows its American roots."
