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.

Sometimes hard truths are hard to swallow. Sowell delivers such truth in this work in excellent fashion. My only regret is not reading this book before now.

In For a New Liberty: The Libertarian Manifesto, Rothbard proposes a once-and-for-all escape from the two major political parties, the ideologies they embrace, and their central plans for using state power against people. Libertarianism is Rothbard's radical alternative that says state power is unworkable and immoral, and ought to be curbed and finally overthrown.

I was a minarchist until I read this tome. While I have previously read a few Rothbard books ... this one basically changed my view in many ways . wonderfully written and not a hard book to get through..
