Editorial Reviews

Review

“What makes this book shine is the clarity of its logic and accessibility of its writing style. In a short book, Riley makes his case powerfully. . . . He also had the guts to include critiques from two leading black intellectuals, John McWhorter and Glenn Loury, and his response. This is a man to respect because he is after the truth and results, not cheap points.” —Thomas Lifson, American thinker

“I have just finished reading part I of Jason Riley’s new book False Black Power?, which NRO is excerpting today, and I want to recommend it right away as highly as I can”  —Roger Clegg, National Review

"The thrust of his slim but significant new book, False Black Power?, from Templeton Press, is the politically incorrect conclusion that black “political clout is no substitute for self-development." —Mark Tapson, Front Page Mag
