Book Description

These selections from the many writings of Thomas Sowell over a period of a half century cover social, economic, cultural, legal, educational, and political issues. The sources range from Dr. Sowell’s letters, books, newspaper columns, and articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. The topics range from late-talking children to “tax cuts for the rich,” baseball, race, war, the role of judges, medical care, and the rhetoric of politicians. These topics are dealt with by sometimes drawing on history, sometimes drawing on economics, and sometimes drawing on a sense of humor.

About the Author

A one-volume introduction to over three decades of the wide-ranging writings of one of America's most respected and cited authors. The Thomas Sowell Reader includes essays on:Social IssuesEconomicsPolitical IssuesLegal IssuesRace and EthnicityEducational IssuesBiographical SketchesRandom Thoughts "My hope is that this large selection of my writings will reduce the likelihood that readers will misunderstand what I have said on many controversial issues over the years. Whether the reader will agree with all my conclusions is another question entirely. But disagreements can be productive, while misunderstandings seldom are." -Thomas Sowell Thomas Sowell has taught economics at Cornell, UCLA, Amherst, and other academic institutions, and his Basic Economics has been translated into six languages. He is currently a scholar in residence at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He has published in both academic journals and such popular media as the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Investors Business Daily, and Fortune, and he writes a syndicated column that appears in newspapers across the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent read 29 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book should be sent to all members of parliament, so that they can understand what is required of them.
Thomas Sowell applies common sense to world and local areas of concern that exposes big government in a very entertaining and knowledable way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 17 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've yet to find anyone who makes such lucid, clear, straightforward and honest arguments as Dr Sowell. David Mamet called him "our greatest contemporary pholisepher"? Who am I to disagree.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for a criticque of the left 6 Jan. 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book shows Sowell at his best. He discusses various topics such as Marx, economics, race, politics, education, and many others. You don't stay on the same topic for too long, just short concise punches, this would definitely be a book you could recommend to introduce someone to Sowell as it covers so many varied subjects and is presented in a digestible, interesting, way.
