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.

    "Basic analysis"

    I hate to say it but I believe this was full of things I already knew. It had really well-researched information and was very well written but for the most part I don't think I gained anything from it. Out of the 13 chapters I think only four of them more worthwhile. A lot of these chapters only required common sense or a basic understanding of politics to understand.

    "Loved It"

    Really loved it. This book should be read by high school students. Thomas goes over world history in a way most people do not want to hear.

    "Great book!"

    There are many very interesting concepts in this book. As someone who has done no other reading on these subjects, It will be interesting to seek out differing points of view and rebuttals

    "Thought provoking"

    You will not agree with all the hypothesis being shared or might even find it repugnant. But you will have to acknowledge that the author makes relevant points and drives them to a logical , at times uncomfortable, conclusions

    "An interesting perspective"
    If you could sum up Black Rednecks and White Liberals in three words, what would they be?

    How do you sum up a book in three words when the minimum allowed listing is 15 words? An excellent perspective.

    "very intellectual"

    interesting info. the book is not for the casual listener, lots of big uncommon words. at times I had to back up and listen again to digest the sentences. A lot of people need to hear this perspective on history.

    "a good read or listen"

    The author provided research examples for his opinions. I did not agree with everything but agreed with a lot. Worth the time.
