Winning The Future: A 21st Century Contract with America
By Newt Gingrich
Regnery Publishing, Inc., January 2005
Hardcover, 272 pp., ISBN: 0895260425, $27.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0895260425/centerforimmigra

 

PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: In the twenty-first century, America could be destroyed. The dangers are manifold: Terrorism. Judges who think they’re God (and who are anti-God). Rising economic challenges from China and India. Immigrants and young Americans who know little about American history and values. Can America survive?

Yes, says Newt Gingrich, and we as Americans can do more: We can create a safer, more prosperous, and healthier America for our children and grandchildren. How? By enacting a 21st Century Contract with America. When he was Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich issued his first Contract with America. What was the result? Sweeping reform that shocked Washington and spurred an economic recovery for the nation, including: the first major tax cut in sixteen years; real, lasting welfare reform; and four years of balanced budgets. But the challenges now are even starker, and Newt is back with a plan for American greatness that includes:

. . .

* How to restore patriotism to American schools – and insist on patriotic learning for new immigrants

Dude, Did I Steal Your Job? Debugging Indian Computer Programmers
By N. Sivakumar
Divine Tree, July 2004
Paperback, 189 pp., ISBN: 0975514008, $14.99
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0975514008/centerforimmigra

 

PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: With the recent backlash against outsourcing and immigrant visa programs like the H1-B and L1, the Indian immigrant programmer community has become a direct target of the anti-immigration and anti-outsourcing activists. While looking at the life, struggle and achievements of Indian immigrant computer programmers with a touch of humour, this book also covers questions that were raised by American programmers, media and some politicians.
