Publisher's Summary

Sociologist-economist Sowell, a noted conservative, draws this collection of essays from his Scripps-Howard syndicated column and his contributions to the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. Sowell offers opinions on social and foreign policy, law, education, and race, criticizing the trend of American politics since Reagan and reserving his sharpest criticism for special-interest groups, such as homosexual lobbies, welfare and pay-equity beneficiaries, and political "victims" of all kinds. His essays are tied together by an analysis of the costs and benefits of various concepts, proposals, and actions, and an emphasis on common sense.

Critic Reviews

"Known as an expert in the economics and politics of race, [Sowell] is also a thinker of wide-ranging interests, as attested by these provocative writings." (Library Journal)

A Great Mind

Thomas Sowell is one of the greatest free-thinkers of today.

A wonderful guy too, check out his other titles on Audible!
