The Thomas Sowell Reader

The Thomas Sowell Reader

A one-volume introduction to over three decades of the wide-ranging writings of one of America’s most respected and cited authors

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.

The Thomas Sowell Reader includes essays on:
* Social Issues
* Economics
* Political Issues
* Legal Issues
* Race and Ethnicity
* Educational Issues
* Biographical Sketches
* Random Thoughts

“My hope is that this large selection of my writings will reduce the likelihood that readers will misunderstand what I have said on many controversial issues over the years. Whether the reader will agree with all my conclusions is another question entirely. But disagreements can be productive, while misunderstandings seldom are.”–Thomas Sowell
