A supplement to traditional textbooks, this insightful volume focuses on ideas or events in history that American survey textbooks regularly ignore or misrepresent.

The author seeks to counter the hero-worship and invisibility of causal effect in history classrooms. The book does not seek to imply that historians are liars, but rather that culturally the United States prefers altering the past rather than explaining blemishes and inconsistencies. The Young Readers’ Edition (256 pages, ©2019) streamlines and abridges the book.

“Every teacher, every student of history, every citizen should read this book. It is both a refreshing antidote to what has passed for history in our educational system and a one-volume education in itself.”
—Howard Zinn
