    This classic statement of economic liberalism or the policy of laissez-faire was first published in 1776. It is an engrossing analysis of the economic facts of life. Several fundamental principles, many of which are now referred to as axioms, were introduced in this work, the division of labor, supply-and-demand, and free market capitalism being among the most obvious.

    Overall

    The text is obviously very dense and a lot to get through, but this audio recording makes it impossible. It sounds extremely outdated, and is very distracting.

    Intruder in the Dust is at once an engrossing murder mystery and an unflinching portrait of racial injustice. Set in Faulkner's fictional Yoknapatawpha County, it is the story of Lucas Beauchamp, a black man wrongly arrested for the murder of Vinson Gowrie, a white man. Confronted by the threat of lynching, Lucas sets out to prove his innocence, aided by a white lawyer, Gavin Stephens, and his young nephew, Chick Mallison.

    Overall

    The story is alright, some reasonably interesting twists although the author can be a bit repetitive at times. The narrator seems to build up almost every sentence with volume and excitement to some sort of climax that really never comes. I comes off as preachy, I found my self tuning out uncle Gavin's long speeches.
