A powerful book that changed my thinking on a number of topics. My favorites were the ones about the black redneck culture and its origins, middle-man minorities, and slavery. His positions are thoroughly explained with lots of evidence. The reader is also very good.
Once again Thomas Sowell hits a home run. In his unique style Professor Sowell takes on our most cherished dogmas and seperates fact from reality. Like his other masterpeice "Applied Economics" his points are right on the money. Local school boards throughout the nation should make his material part of their cirriculum. I just wish I had teachers and professors when i was growing up like the good professor.
In this Book, Dr. Sowell has provided historical precedent and well documented reason for virtually everything I've felt true about our society but until now had only instinct and the anecdotal evidence before my eyes as the basis for my belief. That's a pretty encompassing statement, but it's true. Virtually every paragraph of this book is revealing and delivers body blow after body blow to long held beliefs and socially accepted notions of "history" which have done so much to damage our society over the last half century. Thomas Sowell is without peer as a historical sociologist and in this book, he lays bare the facts against the politically correct social holograms we are spoon-fed every day. It is my intent to commit this book to memory and to see to it that anyone for whom I care reads it and understands its meaning.
