Race and Culture:: Thomas Sowell 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Recommend to those who seek to understand and broaden their mind, and to those interested in the hard topic of how culture informs our world views.
It became quickly apparent to me that this book was not just a survey on race and culture but also a survey of history and economics. Despite the heavy subject matter, Sowell’s style makes it easy to read and understand. He doesn’t talk above you as a reader even though you realize he is intelligent enough to do so. His mission in the book seems to be enabling the reader to think through things, rather than obscure them.
For those who think this book will come down on any one side of political ideology–think again. He myth-busts in all directions and also doesn’t shy away from the hard realities of history modern people like to look away from.
For anyone seeking a balanced survey of thought and research on this topic, this is certainly a title to add to your list. But I will caution: don’t let it be the only one.
