Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Dr. Williams tells the truth. This alone makes him a huge threat to liberals. It also makes his writings an unparalleled soure of economic and cultural wisdom. Williams is a man of principle and good sense, a defender of freedom, and I am happy to be on his side. As should you." —Rush Limbaugh

"Walter Williams is skeptical about government, skeptical about bureaucrats, and skeptical about politicians, but he's never skeptical about liberty. This collections of hard-hitting essays reflects a passionate commitment to freedom." —Phil Gramm, United States Senator

"Here are some of the ideas and values that has made us the most free and most prosperous nation in human history—ideas and values we must recapture." —Dick Armey, United States Congressman

"Walter Williams makes sense. With academic credentials contributing depth to his conclusions, he commands respect. Now, in economics, politics, and social philosophy, we have a ready reference in his own words." —Paul Harvey
