520 1  "In Black Conservative Intellectuals in Modern America, 
       Michael L. Ondaatje delves deeply into the historical 
       archive to chronicle the origins of black conservatism in 
       the United States from the early 1980s to the present. 
       Focusing on three significant policy issues-affirmative 
       action, welfare, and education-Ondaatje critically engages
       with the ideas of nine of the most influential black 
       conservatives. He further documents how their ideas were 
       received, both by white conservatives eager to capitalize 
       on black support for their ideas and by activists on the 
       left who too often sought to impugn the motives of black 
       conservatives instead of challenging the merits of their 
       claims. While Ondaatje's investigation uncovers the themes
       and issues that link these voices together, he debunks the
       myth of a monolithic black conservatism. Figures such as 
       Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the Hoover 
       Institution's Thomas Sowell and Shelby Steele, and 
       cultural theorist John McWhorter emerge as individuals 
       with their own distinct understandings of and 
       relationships to the conservative political tradition."--
