Product description

Review

Lino A. Graglia author of "Disaster by Decree: The Supreme Court Decisions on Race and the Schools" Sowell is our leading practitioner of social commentary based on clear-eyed, hardheaded common sense. He provides insights -- e.g., intellectuals ("the anointed") opt for policies (e.g., disarmament over readiness) that demonstrate their moral superiority -- and destroys myths -- e.g., mortgage lenders discriminate against blacks -- on every issue he touches. Like his previous work, "The Quest for Cosmic Justice" is an antidote for the temptation to moralistic irrationality in public policymaking. In addition he is a wonderful phrasemaker and a delight to read.

About the Author

Thomas Sowell is a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institute and the author of A Personal Odyssey, The Vision of the Anointed, Ethnic America, and several other books. His essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time, Newsweek, Forbes, and Fortune and are syndicated in 150 newspapers. He lives in Stanford, California. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
