Product description


"Sowell's calm and calculated look at racial disparity in America is a stunning work of brevity and reason."--Federalist

"[Sowell] writes on economics in a manner that is not only accessible, but also relevant and even riveting."--The Conservative Woman

"Throughout his career, Thomas Sowell has been fearless in confronting uncomfortable facts about human nature and ill-conceived public policies. His new book, Discrimination and Disparities, is the latest in a long line of works that calmly but persuasively shatter myths and ideological beliefs about race, ethnicity, economics, history, and culture."--New York Journal of Books

"A sane, balanced and highly informed discussion of many of the central issues of the day."--Washington Times

"Everything Dr. Sowell writes is worth reading, but this book couldn't be more timely. If there is any topic that needs a strong dose of empirical data and common sense, it is this one."--Power Line

"Few works on politically explosive topics maintain such a consistent focus on empirical evidence while avoiding rhetorical jabs at opponents...those who cling to this dogma with religious fervor will likely avoid Sowell's fact-filled book like kryptonite. Folks with less dogmatic proclivities, however, would do well to peruse this concise work."--American Thinker

"Timely...a must-read."--Rush Limbaugh, The Limbaugh Letter

About the Author
