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.

In this revised edition, packed with updated material, Loewen explores how historical myths continue to be perpetuated in today's climate and adds an eye-opening chapter on 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 truly possesses.

Thought provoking, nonpartisan, and often shocking, Loewen unveils the real America in this iconoclastic classic beloved by high school teachers, history buffs, and enlightened citizens across the country.

  • MUST READ

    This book is a "must read" for anyone who desires a more educated lesson in history; and, or, just desires a whimsical illustration of how full of propaganda our history academia is. I wrote a term paper, using this book as my mode of thesis, and handed it to a history professor who just LOVED IT!!! A fantastic gift for someone who enjoys literature or education. A fantastic gift for anyone who enjoys reading.

  • Most Excellent

    This is a must read. This book is a winner of the American Book Award and The Oliver Cox Anti Racism Award. This tells the real story of the Native Americans, how slavery was abolished and what Columbus really discovered. This book also tells why we learn about America History the way our school books taught us.

  • lies my teacher told me

    Well, this is a good book, I am sure, if you read it. It has so much information that it is not what I would consider and easy read! My 15 year old daughter who loves to devour books, had trouble with this one. She said that she just could not get in to it. I confess that I feel the same way.
