Publisher's Summary

This book is about the great moral issues underlying many of the headline-making political controversies of our times. It is not a comforting book but a book about disturbing and dangerous trends. The Quest for Cosmic Justice shows how confused conceptions of justice end up promoting injustice, how confused conceptions of equality end up promoting inequality, and how the tyranny of social visions prevents many people from confronting the actual consequences of their own beliefs and policies. Those consequences include the steady and dangerous erosion of fundamental principles of freedom - amounting to a quiet repeal of the American revolution. The Quest for Cosmic Justice is the summation of a lifetime of study and thought about where we as a society are headed - and why we need to change course before we do irretrievable damage.

Essential reading. Well said.

To achieve peace, prosperity-for-every-person, and justice, we must ask ourselves "What approach to achieving these goals has worked in the past?" That is the question that Sowell answers with his deep knowledge of history -- with well-stated facts.

Many will dismiss his statements out-of-hand because it contradicts their ideology. But if we want to know what works, we must not dismiss the point-of-view that Sowell states so clearly.

Thomas Sowell is an example of diversity-in-action. For a black man to state facts that don't conform to the orthodoxy that is demanded of a black person is a beautiful example of liberated thinking. I admire him greatly and learn so much as I listen to him.
