This important study exposes the pernicious influence of left-wing intellectuals on public policy, be it economics, criminology or foreign policy. Sowell shows how often intellectuals have been proved not only wrong, but grossly and disastrously wrong in their proposed solutions - and how seldom their views change in response to evidence of the disasters entailed by those views.
