This book explains that the original wishes of the founders of the American Republic, as well as those of modern luminaries like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Cesar Chavez, have not been realized. Caravantes traces this problem to the radical activism of the 1960s, which introduced the notion of multiculturalism.

Ernesto Caravantes received his first MS in counseling from the University of La Verne and his second MS in American history from Lacrosse University. He has worked as an in-home outreach counselor and is the former host of the cable television show Dialog. As the only son of Mexican immigrant parents, the author has faced certain educational and cultural challenges. From his struggles to learn English as a first-grader to his completion of two master's degrees, his life has been marked by a steady uphill progression of life-long learning and intellectual growth.
