    Intellectuals and Race is a radical book in the original sense - one that goes to the root of the problem. The role of intellectuals in racial strife is explored in an international context that puts the American experience in a wholly new light. The book explores the incentives, the visions, and the rationales that drive intellectuals at the highest levels to conclusions that have often turned out to be counterproductive and even disastrous, not only for particular racial or ethnic groups but for societies as a whole.

    Story

    Unfortunately there are not enough honest scholars (intelectuals) thinking systematically, investigating and writing about this topic. Thomas Sowell is one of the few. He does a brilliant job bringing some much needed light to a very important subject.

    A modern classic, Housekeeping is the story of Ruth and her younger sister, Lucille, who grow up haphazardly, first under the care of their competent grandmother, then of two comically bumbling great-aunts, and finally of Sylvie, their eccentric and remote aunt. The family house is in the small Far West town of Fingerbone, set on a glacial lake, the same lake where their grandfather died in a spectacular train wreck and their mother drove off a cliff to her death.

    Emily says: "errancy, abandonment, and madness"
    "Some review made me expect more."
    Overall

    Some review made me expect more. Well written, somewhat captivating but at the end i just don't see enough arguments or personally have any insight into to struggles presented to appreciate the outcome.
