Jorge Ramos

"People ask if I am a journalist or an activist. The truth is that I am just a journalist who asks questions, but one who does in fact take a stand."—Jorge Ramos After 30 fascinating years uncovering the hard truth, Emmy Award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos opens up for the first time about life-altering lessons by sharing captivating never-before-told stories. Widely recognized for his unapologetic, no-holds-barred approach to interviewing global leaders, business titans, democratic policy makers and dictators who threaten to derail those principles, Ramos unearths their one common trait—they are all rebels. Rebels are different. At some point they decided to challenge the prevailing status quo. Sometimes they rebelled to change a regime, other times to prevent abuse or discrimination, but in all cases they strived to correct an injustice. In Take a Stand, Ramos looks back on groundbreaking interviews with rebels such as President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Spike Lee, Barbara Walters, Fidel Castro and more. Candid and at times controversial, Ramos draws invaluable awareness of issues that influence the mindset of the largest minority in the country and how they will undoubtedly shape not only Presidential elections but also the future of America.

'People ask if I am a journalist or an activist.

In six short chapters, Ramos humanizes undocumented immigrants, argues why you should care, and explains why reform is needed now. Above all, it's an inspiring book.' Newsweek Praise for The Other Face of America 'Levelheaded yet passionate . . . Accept a multicultural society and embrace diversity, says Ramos, or beat your head against the wall. Truer words were never spoken, even if they are still fighting words for too many.' Kirkus Reviews

Twelve Southerners,Susan V. Donaldson

First published in 1930, the essays in this manifesto constitute one of the outstanding cultural documents in the history of the South. In it, twelve southerners-Donald Davidson, John Gould Fletcher, Henry Blue Kline, Lyle H. Lanier, Stark Young, Allen Tate, Andrew Nelson Lytle, Herman Clarence Nixon, Frank Lawrence Owsley, John Crowe Ransom, John Donald Wade, and Robert Penn Warren-defended individualism against the trend of baseless conformity in an increasingly mechanized and dehumanized society. In her new introduction, Susan V. Donaldson shows that the Southern Agrarians might have ultimately failed in their efforts to revive the South they saw as traditional, stable, and unified, but they nonetheless sparked debates and quarrels about history, literature, race, gender, and regional identity that are still being waged today over Confederate flags, monuments, slavery, and public memory.

Teach your children to think for themselves and why America is great. With 51 captioned illustrations, 6 parables that teach lessons of life, and Questions for Kids at the end of each major section, Don't Take My Lemonade Stand - An American Philosophy is written to help parents teach their children. We as parents have the obligation to take charge of who is teaching our children and what our children are being taught. This book is for those that believe in the preeminence of children, the vigorous expression of patriotism, and the power of clear-eyed optimism. Janie Johnson says "The strength of our country resides in the minds of our children, and the future of our country will be found in their actions." There's no question that our political system has become corrupt and politicians - on both sides of the aisle - are voting in favor of the special interests that donated to them instead of the citizens who elected them. They have all contributed to the abandonment of the Common Sense Conservative principles upon which our country was founded and under which we have prospered. Don't Take My Lemonade Stand: An American Philosophy is the book that tells where we came from, how out-of-control, big government/big spending policies are driving us to ruin, and exactly what we the people can do to take back our country right here, right now, and get it back on course to peace, prosperity, and opportunity.
