Contemporary Culture • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Sowell attempts to describe the effect of conquests and conquering on nations, in particular Great Britain, Africa, the Slavic nations and the Americas. The work provides a broad background in the history, economics and politics of each country or continent. Whitener reads this extensive sociopolitical history smoothly, taking his time to pronounce all the non-English words properly and allowing the listener to think about Sowell's hypothesis. Although clearly and professionally performed, the text is repetitive, and the information shallow in places. Specific examples of actions and events that might be footnoted in the print version are lacking in the audiobook, frustrating the listener.
