Description

CONQUESTS AND CULTURES by Thomas Sowell (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Sowell writes…with grace and clarity.” (Washington Times) To explain how cultural evolution and warfare shape the world’s civilizations, Sowell focuses on four major cultural areas—the British, the Africans, the Slavs of Eastern Europe, and the indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere—revealing patterns that encompass not only these peoples but others. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator Robertson Dean. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “Thomas Sowell is, in my opinion, the most original and interesting philosopher at work in America.” (Johnson, author of Modern Times) •EXPERIENCE.

RATING: 9+ Suitable for adults with a great interest in history. ___________________ This book is the culmination of fifteen years of research and travels that have taken the author completely around the world twice. Its purpose has been to try to understand the role of cultural differences within nations and between nations, today and over the centuries of history, in shaping the economic and social fates of peoples and of whole civilizations. Focusing on four major cultural areas—that of the British, the Africans (including the African Diaspora), the Slavs of Eastern Europe, and the indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere—Conquests and Cultures reveals patterns that encompass not only these peoples but others and help explain the role of cultural evolution in economic, social, and political development.
