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.

    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.

    "Strong, Factual History"

    Sowell is always an excellent read. If only more people understood and were interested in factual history, rather than promoting their fantasies...

    "Utterly unexpected, worldview-shattering"

    Very different from common sense, yet this book has the references to back its claims up.

    "Invaluable work and contribution to understanding"
    What did you love best about Black Rednecks and White Liberals?

    I thank God for Professor Sowell's great labor and the incredibly insightful points made in the culmination of a great work of truth. He has touched on aspects of human behavior that most people are afraid to address let alone research.
    Nevertheless there is no other work that surpasses BRWL as a phenomenally well researched library and contribution to those of us who thirst to not only know the truth but to have means of dispensing that truth to all we can expose to it.
    Congratulations professor Sowell and God bless you sir.


    What other book might you compare Black Rednecks and White Liberals to and why?

    Mugged


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Mann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He gives a very excellent representation and presention of the Professor's work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The information on middleman minorities was very interesting but the most valuable information that every American (especially Americans of African descent) should know is the chapter on the history of slavery. There are many books on slavery but Sowell's perspective places the blames as well as the credits exactly where they belong.


    Any additional comments?

    I pray to God that this book will become a standard for any truth seeking group or individuals
