Abstract:

This book challenges many assumptions about blacks, Jews, Germans, slavery, and education. Plainly written and backed with documented facts, it takes on not only the trendy intellectuals of our times but also such historic interpreters of American life as Alexis de Tocqueville and Frederick Law Olmsted. In a series of long essays, Sowell presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many mistaken and dangerous actions, policies, and trends, and presents insights into the historical development of the ghetto culture that is today wrongly seen as a unique black identity--a culture cheered on toward self-destruction by white liberals who consider themselves "friends" of blacks. One essay presents a jolting re-examination of the tragic institution of slavery and the narrow and distorted way it is too often seen today. Another explores the reasons for the venomous hatred of Jews, and of other groups like them in countries around the world. --From publisher description.
