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.

A well researched and presented book on the treatment and ideology of race and intellectuals. Sowell discusses "the elephant in the room" that some intellectuals will neither discuss nor acknowledge.

I'm finding this series interesting and I'm waiting to see what happens next with the kids. I believe that this series is not quite as good as the original Left Behind Series. However I'm open to the possibility that it is still relevant to a different audience than those who are read the original series. In this drama the decisions of the kids at times may appear risky and somewhat irrational, such is the behavior young people who are living in a world in which their lives are at risk and have a deep commitment to their faith.

Despite the criticisms of some that this series integrates Bible Prophecy in these books they (the critics) forget that the Left Behind Series is fiction and that the purpose of these books is to entertain as well as inform the "audience" about End Times/Last Days Bible Prophecies from a view that resembles Pre-Millenialist Biblical Theology. There are several schools of belief on the subject of End Times/ Last Days & Bible Prophecy in professed Christiandom and these books present one of those views while attempting to entertain and invite discussion on this subject.

My hope is that many who read any of the books will approach the series with an open mind regardless of what their beliefs and views are. I cannot wait any longer to see what book four brings. I hope audible continues to carry this series.

I did feel somethings were a bit rushed, however I still did find this book to be suspense filled and leaving me with a desire to find-out what's the next thing. I'm sure the book is far more superior to the audio in the length and details, however this audio will suffice.

Also, I was initially thrown by the new narrator, however it eventually didn't bother me. My main interest was the story. This narrator is fine. Though I did miss the previous narrator.

In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism.

This book was well researched and very enlighting. From the extent of Ann Coultier's research on the Vinona Project to the accurate and historical account of Senator Joseph McCarthy's inquiry into Communists in the State Department this book pulls no punches and leaves no stone unturned. This truly her best yet.
