Everything—well, almost everything—you know about American history is wrong, because most textbooks and popular history books are written by left-wing academic historians who treat their biases as fact. But fear not; Professor Thomas Woods refutes the popular myths in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.

Professor Woods’ book reveals facts that you won’t be, or never were, taught in school. It tells you about the “Books You’re Not Supposed to Read” and takes you on a fast-paced, politically incorrect tour of American history that will give you all the information you need to battle and confound left-wing professors, neighbors, and friends.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It is not surprising that a history guide written by a professor with an undergraduate degree from Harvard and a doctorate from Columbia made it onto the New York Times bestseller list. What is surprising—refreshingly so—is that a text that challenges the liberal canon has so resonated with the American public…Provides a compelling rebuttal to the liberal sentiment encrusted upon current history texts…The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History is ultimately about truth…This is a book everyone interested in American history should have in his library.”

    Weekly Standard

  • “Knowing our past is essential if we are to preserve our freedoms. Professor Woods’ work heroically rescues real history from the politically correct memory hole. Every American should read this book.”

    The Honorable Ron Paul, MD, US House of Representatives

  • “Woods has taken on some of the big historical issues with a fresh and definitely non-PC approach. His take on American history is bold, brilliant, thought-provoking, and what is even better, entertaining.”

    Clyde N. Wilson, professor of history, University of South Carolina

  • “An important work that refutes the misrepresentations of American history that have misinformed generations about their country, its origins, purposes, successes, and failures. Riveting, highly readable.”

    " This was the first of any of the PIG books that I read. Excellent, well-documented sources, and recommendations of other books on the topics covered. I highly recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by Scott Birk | 2/16/2014

    " This was an interesting take on several American history events. I was especially concerned with what I read about President Reagan. I guess no one is perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Review by Jared Murphy | 2/9/2014

    " I am a fan of the Politically Incorrect series of historical books. The series typically attempts to give a balanced representation of history, in some cases having to go far to the other extreme of the accepted version that is espoused by the victor. Even if you do not agree with viewpoints given in these books, it is a good thing to get a different perspective. Certainly, a good historian should look at subjects objectively, nay, pragmatically, as possible. One thing I can say: general history does get caught up in repeating the same mantras or narratives and in reality, as one looks more closely to particulars and arguments concerning the issues in an event, things are never as cut and dry as they are presented in generalities. Unfortunately, it seems a lot of people don't want to look at the particulars and would rather settle for the more stable (at least reassuring) generalities. Give me the particulars. "

    " This is a very easy read, not like a normal history book. The author shows things that are left out of history books in schools. It also shows a different side of some situations and people. "
