Reviews

"A delight: terse, well-argued, and utterly convincing."--Economist

"Among contemporary economists and social theorists, one of the most prolific, intellectually independent, and iconoclastic is Thomas Sowell. . . . Enormously learned, wonderfully clear-headed, he sees reality as it is, and flinches at no truth. . . . Sowell's presentation of the data is instructive and illuminating--and disturbing."--Carl Cohen, Commentary

"Another brilliant, bracing achievement by Thomas Sowell. With characteristic lucidity, erudition, and depth, Sowell examines the true effects of affirmative action around the globe. This book is compelling, important, mind-opening."--Amy Chua, author of World on Fire How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability
