A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles
By: Thomas Sowell
Publisher: Basic Books, 2002; originally published 1930
This is a classic about how conflicts in politics and public policy arise. According to Sowell, there is a pattern that is shaped by two competing visions about “the nature of reason, justice, equality and power.” His conclusion is that all public policy disputes are centered on the disputes between these two visions.
