“Culture” Learning Path

Culture is a very broad topic, and many researchers have used different definitions of culture. The books below focus on the beliefs and values of a people and how they relate to economic development and innovation.

I recommend that you read these book summaries in the following order:

  1. “Migration and Culture” by Thomas Sowell
  2. “Conquests and Cultures” by Thomas Sowell
