Essential reading from an expert voice our country needs: Luis Miranda’s personal and political memoir reveals a deep understanding of Latino culture and building community to change our world for the better.
A veteran of New York and national politics, Luis Miranda embodies the relentless spirit of progress of American immigrants.
There is nobody on the Latino, New York, and national political scene with the breadth of experience, passion, and storytelling charm of Luis Miranda. In Relentless, he shares the poignant narrative of his life and career—from his early days as a radically minded Puerto Rican activist to his decades of political advice and problem solving.
We experience the thrill of the ascendency of Hamilton, created by his son Lin-Manuel. And we experience the suffering after the devastation of Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria. Amid the triumphs, challenges, and ongoing hard work, Miranda examines what his experience reveals about our ever-changing politics, demographics, and society.

About the Author

Luis Miranda arrived in New York City from Puerto Rico in 1974 to study psychology at NYU, but soon found himself drawn to community action, organizing his neighbors to fight for better schools for their children. In the 1980s he was a special advisor for Hispanic Affairs to Mayor Ed Koch, and he continued to serve in key roles for the Dinkins and Giuliani administrations. As a founding partner of the MirRam Group, Miranda has consulted on a number of successful political campaigns, including the senatorial campaigns of Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Most recently he managed New York Attorney General Letitia James’ successful re-election to that post. Miranda is the founding president of the Hispanic Federation and is currently the chairperson of the Latino Victory Fund, the Public Theater, Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, and Viva Broadway. He is a board member of The City and the chair of the Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center.
