Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong

This up to date and revised edition of the American Book Award-winner and national bestseller revitalizes the truth of The united states’s history, explores how myths continue to be perpetrated, and includes a new chapter on 9/11 and the Iraq War.

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 put out of your mind almost all of the ambiguity, passion, conflict, and drama from our past.

In this revised edition, packed with up to date material, Loewen explores how historical myths continue to be perpetuated in lately’s climate and adds an eye-opening chapter at the lies surrounding 9/11 and the Iraq War. From the truth about Columbus’s historic voyages to an honest evaluation of our national leaders, Loewen revives our history, restoring the vitality and relevance it actually possesses.

Thought provoking, nonpartisan, and ceaselessly shocking, Loewen unveils the true The united states on this iconoclastic classic beloved by high school teachers, history buffs, and enlightened citizens across the country.
