JASON L. RILEY
The Wall Street Journal Columnist & Author
A Biography of Thomas Sowell
Jason L. Riley is a fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a columnist for The Wall Street Journal, where he has written about politics, economics, education, immigration and social inequality for more than 20 years.
In the first-ever biography of Thomas Sowell, Maverick, Mr. Riley gives this iconic thinker his due. “You’re about to meet one of the greatest minds of the past half-century,” said Riley. “His story is both fascinating and illuminating.”
Maverick showcases Sowell's most significant writings and traces the life events that shaped his ideas and resulted in a Black orphan from the Jim Crow South becoming one of our foremost public intellectuals.
Thomas Sowell is one of the great social theorists of our age. In a career spanning more than a half century, he has written over thirty books, covering topics from economic history and social inequality to political theory, race, and culture.
