Sowell offers opinions on social and foreign policy, law, education, and race, criticizing the trend of American politics since Reagan and reserving his sharpest criticism for special-interest groups, such as homosexual lobbies, welfare and pay-equity beneficiaries, and political "victims" of all kinds. His essays are tied together by an analysis of the costs and benefits of various concepts, proposals, and actions, and an emphasis on common sense.

"Known as an expert in the economics and politics of race, [Sowell] is also a thinker of wide-ranging interests, as attested by these provocative writings." (Library Journal)
many of these articles are still relevant today, and the others are an interesting view of history. however, I prefer most of sowells other books to this collection of articles
