Summary
A critical examination of failed social policies, in particular the 'politically correct' theory, identifies the mistakes that have penalized American education, criminal justice, and core families
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Sowell presents a devastating critique of the mind-set behind the failed social policies of the past thirty years. Sowell sees what has happened during that time not as a series of isolated mistakes but as a logical consequence of a tainted vision whose defects have led to crises in education, crime, and family dynamics, and to other social pathologies. In this book, he describes how elites—the anointed—have replaced facts and rational thinking with rhetorical assertions, thereby altering the course of our social policy.
