Editorial Reviews

Review

[Charles Murray] has done more to provoke serious debate on subjects ranging from welfare to IQ than any of the million or so members of American academe, and more to produce changes in America's welfare state than any of the army of professional politicians., The Economist

What causes poverty in America? Lack of money. It’s that simple. And Charles Murray is simple-minded. All geniuses are. Let King Gordius of Phygia stand for Congress, the courts, and the executive branch. The yoke of social welfare programs has been tied to the chariot of politics with a not so ingenious that no one can unite it. Now read In Our Hands and watch the sword of Alexander the Great—or, rather, the pen of Murray the Brilliant—sever policy’s tangled skein. -- P.J. O'Rourke

In a world of timid prevaricators and world-weary complacency, thank God for Charles Murray. In this brief, but profound tract, he restates the obvious: that government is in the way of longer, safer, happier lives for all of us, and that we have the power to remove it. . . . We need his voice now more than ever, and in this book, it is as piercing, honest, and rigorous as ever. -- Andrew Sullivan

Charles Murray is a political scientist, author, and libertarian. He first came to national attention in 1984 with the publication of "Losing Ground," which has been credited as the intellectual foundation for the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. His 1994 New York Times bestseller, "The Bell Curve" (Free Press, 1994), coauthored with the late Richard J. Herrnstein, sparked heated controversy for its analysis of the role of IQ in shaping America's class structure. Murray's other books include "What It Means to Be a Libertarian" (1997), "Human Accomplishment" (2003), "In Our Hands" (2006), and "Real Education" (2008). His 2012 book, "Coming Apart" (Crown Forum, 2012), describes an unprecedented divergence in American classes over the last half century. His most recent book is "By the People: Rebuilding Liberty Without Permission" (Crown Forum, 2015).
