"Among contemporary economists and social theorists, one of the most prolific, intellectually independent, and iconoclastic is Thomas Sowell. . . .

Sowell's presentation of the data is instructive and illuminating---and disturbing."---Carl Cohen, Commentary

This book is compelling, important, mind-opening."---Amy Chua, author of World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability
"A masterpiece that deserves to be one of the most influential books of our time. Any honest reader will be informed and enlightened."---Donald Kagan, Yale University
"A gem of a book. A brilliant and learned analysis of the negative effects of racially preferential policies both in the United States and in several other countries around the world."---Stephan Thernstrom, Harvard University
