The Thomas Sowell Reader

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.

Review
''Engaging and accessible . . . Sowell's careful explicating of and grappling with issues allow his thoughts to be clearly exhibited, understood, and welcomed. Even leftist thinkers will appreciate Sowell's personal charm and intellectual rigor.'' --Publishers Weekly

''A solid, representative collection by a writer and thinker whom one either agrees with or not--and there's not much middle ground on which to stand.'' --Kirkus Reviews
