A conservative historian defends America’s past by debunking four dozen common liberal myths

In this follow-up to the best-selling A Patriot’s History of the United States, Professor Larry Schweikart once again challenges liberal historians and their shameful attempts to distort our country’s legacy. This time he takes on authors of popular textbooks who, in an effort to be politically correct, tarnish America’s image in the eyes of our high school and college students.

The problem isn’t that liberal authors present their opinions or interpretations of history from an obvious left-wing bias. The problem is authors who actually distort facts and manipulate data in an effort to appear objective and unbiased while furthering their leftist objectives.

Students learn, for example, that the Founding Fathers were elitists who drafted the Constitution in order to protect their own economic interests. . . .That Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation only because he needed black soldiers. . . .That racist groups such as the KKK represented our society in the early twentieth century. . . .That the failures of capitalism caused the Great Depression. All false, as readers will discover. Download and start listening now!

    " I must have had a better education than most because while I've heard most of these lies, none of them made into into my textbooks! I found it a fast, interesting, well researched read. "

    " Very interesting book. It does shatter the images that have been portrayed by teachers, the media, and others about events in our history. While each subject gets a cursory explanation, the author provides plenty of references should you desire to explore any of the subjects further. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary | 8/15/2013

    " Fairly interesting book. Not really anything that any serious student of history that is interested in truth and reality rather than pushing a political agenda should not be able to figure out with just common sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 5/29/2013

    " Some new perspective on the old stories. Extensively footnoted, it allows the reader to go and do his/her own research to confirm/refute the assertions of either side of the argument. And, if you don't believe what he's saying in this book, please go do your own research and THEN write your review. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ger | 2/25/2013

    " Our history has been re-written and reflects the liberal leanings of the authors. Larry Schweikart and a few others are trying to set the record straight. I recommend this book. It is an easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 1/23/2013

    " The nice thing about the book is that it touches a many topics in quick fashion. More could be said about each topic, but that would be left for further study. A good compliment to Michael Medved's "10 Myths about America". "

    " Larry Schweikart cites "The American Pagaent" textbook multiple times throughout the book. "American Pagaent" was in fact, my AP US history textbook in high school. Thanks high school. "
