Publisher's Summary

This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

Through a series of essays, Sowell presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many policies and trends. He presents eye-opening insights into the development of the ghetto culture, a culture cheered on toward self-destruction by white liberals who consider themselves "friends" of blacks.

Black Rednecks and White Liberals is the capstone of decades of outstanding research and writing on racial and cultural issues by Thomas Sowell.

    "Informative Book"
    Any additional comments?

    I learned a great deal from this book. I feel it is one of the best books ever written about Black culture and White liberals. I like the fact Thomas Sowell backed up every narrative with facts. The book move along very quickly. I would highly recommend this book.

    "Interesting research, flawed conclusions"

    I do not agree with 90% of the author's conclusions. However, his historical research is impeccable and fascinating. The author's perspective and ability to put historical events in broader context makes it a worthwhile listen, although his conclusions exceed that which is suggested by the research.

    "Mandatory reading"

    Excellent book. This will be required reading (at least the chapters on Black Rednecks and Slavery) for my children when they are old enough. The Black Rednecks chapter changed the way I think. The Slavery chapter made me prouder than ever of our history as well as outraging me about the modern left and the anti American slant they take.

    "Very Refreshing"

    This is a remarkable book that really tells it like it is and coming from a black man, no not an "african american" offers a unique perspective. He is simply brilliant in his writings, a true gift that every race should read. I highly recomend this book.

    "Eye Opening"

    Thomas Sowell has quickly become one of my favorite authors. This book is filled with information that they don't teach in school, information that is not politically correct but makes sense and explains many of the issues in our society.

    "Very Informative"

    I learned a lot and even added some new words to my vocabulary. The narration became a little hard to follow because of some difficult words but the context helped to define the meaning. The narrator did an average job of voice inflection to keep my attention. However, my interest in the subject matter is what kept me listening. I will listen several more times to pick up some subject matter I may have missed.

    This is definitely a good listen for those who are interested in history and those who don't have a good understanding or distorted view of historical fact. I am different after listening to this audiobook and highly recommend it for all.

    "Very interesting subject matter"

    Fascinating history lesson. A great deal of information to process. I like the fact that someone has put together a book that addressed this topic. Good narration.

    "knowledge truly is power!"

    this book blew my mind and enlighten me at the same time. Knowledge truly is power sometimes it hard to listen to the facts but you can never heal a wound if you refuse to pay it any attention. Thank you for so much for reading this book I really think that it can do wonders for rebuilding the black community and history itself

    "Africans Enslaved White People"

    A thoroughly-researched book. And more relevant than ever for exposing racist black supremacist cults like "blacklivesmatter".

    "Thomas Sowell provided transformative information"

    The information provided in this book has been transformative and changed my historical understanding. Thomas Sowell is by far one of favorite intellectual minds.
