Sintesi dell'editore

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.

"These vigorously argued essays present a stimulating challenge to the conventional wisdom." (Publishers Weekly)

Really interesting

Interesting ideas, well researched, and clearly understood, black rednecks and white liberals offers some good arguments against the perceived wisdom that seems to drive certain political ideologies.

A couple of things to be aware of:
- Sowell tends to write in essay format which is fine but it does mean that sometimes the overall book lacks structure. Additionally, chapters often rehash the same ground as early ones, often even reusing examples.
- the narrator is good and clear but talks rather slowly. You might want to consider listening on double speed.

Excellent book

Superb and entertaining book. The reading voice is somehow monotonous but you forget about it when the subject is so interesting. It is great to see somebody against the politically correct tide.

5/5

This is a truly exceptional and eye-opening book. Every leftist and left-leaning person should read this - I've no doubt it would shake their core beliefs at the very least.

A comprehensive history of slavery and more...

Thank you, Thomas Sowell, and Hugh Mann. Loved this book. Sowell tells it straight with no axe to grind. Make no mistake, this is facinating and yet still an education. I wish I had read this book years ago. Mann's narration has a warmth to it that pulled me in from the start. Nothing in this made me feel I wanted to skip to the next chapter and I know I will definitely be revisiting this audio book again in the near future.

wordy but a broad look at culture

An interesting view into what can drive groups to perform the way they do without the convenience of victim labels.

A must listen

This book bringings clarity to a deliberately obfuscated subject; the national and cultural identity of the US.

Thomas Sowell lays out, both clearly and candidly, the cultural chronology of the US peoples and where they came from. He takes particular attention to the fallacies of identity politics.

Excellently writen and skillfully narrated, I highly recommend this audiobook as a must listen.
