This book on race is an extended analysis from a chapter in Sowell's Intellectuals and Society. As with many of his books, Sowell coolly proposes that grievance and resentments are dead-ends, and that there is a diverse and world-historical perspective that offer richer ways of looking at and dealing with racism than the false, no-skin-in-the-game solutions proposed by many liberal and progressive intellectuals. The section on race and intelligence is especially illuminating in debunking genetic determinism.
