Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on not only the trendy intellectuals of our times but also such historic interpreters of American life as Alexis de Tocqueville and Frederick Law Olmsted. History Versus Visions[ edit ] The final essay features Sowell's criticism of the advantages that multiculturalism is supposed to confer to the society in which it is present.
