Bruce Thatcher is author of Immigration: How to Avoid Its Perils and Make It Work  and founder of History Speaks Today, a project dedicated to sharing great lessons learned from accomplishments and failures of those in our past, to help us avoid making the same mistakes again and again. 


Thatcher has had a passion for history throughout his varied career.  In each business in which he was engaged, he immersed himself in research gathering facts and insight on how past problems and issues were addressed.  He truly believes that much can be learned and applied from successes and failures of our past.  On his web site and in his talks he clarifies what we should learn and adopt from the handling and mishandling of key areas such as national security, national solidarity, social progress, immigration, and other crucial areas of stumbling by nationsí leaders.


Early on he recognized that one issue affects every business and government in the world today, because it so severely impacts their economy, their health care system and most importantly their national security. That issue is Immigration. 


Thatcher's first book, Adamant Aggressors: How to Recognize and Deal with Them, released in 2011, is a collection of cases that demonstrate unassailable dos and doníts for dealing with todayís international threats.   


Thatcher grew up in the mid-west, and graduated from Iowa State College and the University of Chicago.  He worked in marketing and management with General Electric and The Vendo Company, then founded and led a telecommunications consulting firm, TelCon Associates, for 30 years until his retirement. 


While living in the Chicago area, he became involved in politics and was elected to a local high school Board of Education, serving a term as its President.  He has also taught classes at Avalon University, William Jewell College and the University of Missouri at Kansas City. 


Thatcher and his wife, Carol, now live near New Braunfels, Texas.
