5.0 out of 5 stars ..yes, and how many times...?, 5 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The "Grand and Ever-Young Lady" of the history of non-muslim bondage to islamic supremacism and imperialism through the ages looks back at her and her late husband's lifelong scientific struggle to enlighten the Western Wold and its decision-makers in politics and the media about the mortal threat of tolerating the intolerable. A mind-blowing effort? Yes, but how many times must a PC tolerator look and pretend that he just doesn't see...

The Vision of the Anointed: Self Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy
The Vision of the Anointed: Self Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy
by Thomas Sowell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars There is no substitute for class, lads, 6 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thomas Sowell is truly the beacon of scholarly honesty and profound scientific attitude in a misty world of self-congratulating and halo-polishing academia. We have to thank someone - beyond his parents - for having his voice rapping counter-bass against the flowery rhetoric of the visionaries.

Race and Culture: A World View
Race and Culture: A World View
by Thomas Sowell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Common sense accompanied by uncommon knowledge, 6 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thomas Sowell, for a lifetime economist and sociologist of considerable reputation, has - scholarly and intellectually - always been the lone wolf that never howled along with his contemporaries in their self-complacent cirkling around in their fancy mainstream fences. In this sense, he has few companions, but impressive predecessors - Hayek and Friedman, to name the most influencial. He owes a lot of his fame to the unique combination of profound knowledge and unwavering common sense that he possesses - and common sense in the Western World around the year 2000 owes a lot to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flight of the intellectuals, 20 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing hurts "intellectuals" like the truth that is not cherished by themselves. And hardly anyone has done more than Thomas Sowell to reveal the final destination of the "flight of the intellectuals" in the USA: The mental couch hammock. For this he deserves immense credit
