Since the liberal revolution of the ’60s and ’70s, American history books have been biased toward the negative, distorting the way America’s past is taught. They overemphasize America’s racism, sexism, and bigotry while downplaying the greatness of her patriots. As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington, more on the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII than D-day or Iwo Jima, more on the dangers we faced from Joseph McCarthy than those we faced from Josef Stalin.

This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of America’s true and proud history. The authors reexamine America’s discovery, founding, and development with an appreciation for the principles of public virtue, personal liberty, and private property that have made this nation so uniquely successful.

    " A VERY long read but worth the time. Interesting how an author's values can determine what is taught or remembered in history - one person's hero can be another's villain and certain important events in history can be totally left out of our childrens' school textbooks without us even realizing it! "

    " This is a very good U.S. history. Be warned, Schweikart is an ultra-conservative and this is vry evident throughout the book. I found that he was right on the money with his information, if not his viewpoint. I found it easy to read, and I believe he did a great job, at times, to find the silver lining in situations. I would definitely recommend reading this book, especially if you have read Howard Zinn. "
