“Sowell takes aim at the class of people who influence our public debate, institutions, and policy. Few of Sowell’s targets are left standing at the end, and those who are stagger back to their corner, bloody and bruised.”
“Mr. Sowell builds a devastating case against the leftist antiwar political and intellectual establishment."

I must admit that the basics proposed by Sowell, namely that many of the Intellectuals' opinions spewed so widely in the press and media in general, but not supported by facts or proper logic. Is strongly in agreement with my personally held opinions. As an outsider i.e. a non American who had the priviledge of frequent visits to the USA over many years. I think I got a good picture of the differences in the American Way as lived by normal Americans and the American Way as propagated by the Intelligensia.
His writing is 'readable' and yet profound in its relevance to our society and individual lives.
