    Curators at Smithsonian have included Democracy Now! co-host Juan González’s book, “Harvest of Empire: A History of Latinos in America” on their holiday gift guide for history lovers. This comes as the film based on his book has won an award for the best use of archival footage at the International Documentary Association Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Harvest of Empire: The Untold History of Latinos in America uses rarely seen archival material to reveal the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and today’s immigration crisis.
