The Quest for Cosmic Justice, by Thomas Sowell. As Thomas Sowell approaches 70 years of age we find him at the top of his game. His game, of course, is analyzing a pressing topic with clarity, intelligence and wisdom. In his latest work, he discusses the justice system and the US Constitution, discarding the psychobabble that currently surrounds "social justice", "judicial activism" and vain notions that the Constitution is a "living document". He goes back to square one to remind us of what the American Revolution was all about; it gave "the common man a voice, a veto, elbow room, and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of his betters." No one thinks or writes more clearly than Thomas Sowell. This is a book to inspire both thought and action...a must read.

Civil Rights: Rhetoric or Reality (pb,164pp) This book deals specifically with Black's and Women's civil rights issues…bussing, affirmative action, quotas, etc. Mr Sowell dispells the myths of the affirmative action movement and shows that, although some prejudice remains in this country that the best opportunities for all Americans comes through their own hard work in a free and open market. order book
