Americans have lost touch with their history, and in Lies My Teacher Told Me Professor James Loewen shows why. After surveying eighteen leading high school American history texts, he has concluded that not one does a decent job of making history interesting or memorable. Marred by an embarrassing combination of blind patriotism, mindless optimism, sheer misinformation, and outright lies, these books omit almost all the ambiguity, passion, conflict, and drama from our past.

    Finally a Book That Covers the Real History

    Posted by Brenna on 15th Jun 2020

    I've been meaning to read this book as a avid history fan! The write does a great job having you rethink how history is taught and just how many people and events are whitewashed over to make our past seem shiny.
