Synopsis

This national best-seller and American Book Award winner is an entertaining, informative, and sometimes shocking expose of the way history is taught to American students. James W.

What he finds is a proliferation of blind patriotism, mindless optimism, misinformation, and flat-out lies filling the pages.
