A conservative historian defends America's past by debunking four dozen common liberal myths In this follow-up to the best-selling A Patriot's History of the United States, Professor Larry Schweikart once again challenges liberal historians and their shameful attempts to distort our country's legacy. This time he takes on authors of popular textbooks who, in an effort to be politically correct, tarnish America's image in the eyes of our high school and college students. The problem isn't that liberal authors present their opinions or interpretations of history from an obvious left-wing bias. The problem is authors who actually distort facts and manipulate data in an effort to appear objective and unbiased while furthering their leftist objectives. Students learn, for example, that the Founding Fathers were elitists who drafted the Constitution in order to protect their own economic interests. . . .That Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation only because he needed black soldiers. . . .That racist groups such as the KKK represented our society in the early twentieth century. . . .That the failures of capitalism caused the Great Depression. All false, as readers will discover.

Professional reviews

"Schweikart takes 48 claims about American history that he ascribes to liberals and gives evidence for their fallaciousness and dishonesty, with considerable conservative anger. Narrator Sean Pratt expresses that anger with a cool and scornful asperity--but not a lot of energy. His tone gets across Schweikart's scorn and bemusement but causes his occasional humorous asides to fall flat. Pratt's quiet, clear, and precise voice allows the listener to easily follow the author's points. Though he keeps up a good pace, it sometimes seems too controlled for the author's disgust. Overall, the text calls for more pep and more alterations in tone to better fit particular passages. W.M. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
